King Size

directed by Christoph Marthaler


Show in german with overtitles in Italian

Christoph Marthaler and his ensemble inspect the perfect Enharmonic moment: sleeping. And the place where we sleep is the king size bed.
Listen to sixties hits of the Kinks, Goethe songs by Schumann and Come heavy sleep by John Dowland, next to Beethoven and The Jackson Five.

A couple are trying to sleep in an unfamiliar room, but they feel lost in the huge bed. As their dreams take over they console themselves through songs from Purcell to the Jackson Five via Schumann and Michel Polnareff.

"KING SIZE is Marthaler at his best. In a hotel room, a couple is trying to sleep, but both their dreams and the king-size bed are too big. Music, from Wagner to German Schlager, will console. One of the most bittersweet evenings on the German theatre scene at the moment". (Kampnagel, Hamburg)
