Based on the Novel by Alexander Schimmelbusch
Direction: Kevin Barz
Guest performance of world premiere
Hochdeutschland tells the story of Victor, an investment banker and millionaire. Bored with his constant success, he writes a political manifesto that attacks the very foundations of the system that made him rich.
He dreams up a welfare state that redistributes its wealth for more economic equality. Sensing the deep-seated anxieties of his fellow citizens, he forms his own populist movement that slowly leads him down the path of revolution. Alexander Schimmelbusch’s novel asks important questions in our age of late capitalism: Is our system broken? Is there still a place for solidarity in neoliberist capitalism? And is it time to start all over?
Alexander Schimmelbusch asks the central questions of our time: Is our system broken? Do we belong together? What price do you pay for living according to your own rules? Can we continue like this? Or is it time for a radical new beginning?
