Das Weinen

Based on texts by Dieter Roth
Staging: Christoph Marthaler

Two exceptional Swiss men who have lots in common: Dieter Roth and Christoph Marthaler both share, for example, a distinct fondness of the weathering of the body, spirit and chocolate given the slow passing of time. In the late 1980s, Roth gave two special editions of his texts to Christoph Marthaler. Now, almost 30 years (and Corona-related a few more months) later, we are witnessing the first highly public encounter between Roth and Marthaler.
