Anagoor / Theater an der Ruhr, Mülheim
Based on Antonio Scurati’s novel “The Survivor,” which deals with a shooting at an Italian school, “Socrates the Survivor” investigates the consequences of education and upbringing. Director Simone Derai intimately explores the daily classroom routine of a philosophy class just one day before the massacre. Told from the perspective of a history and philosophy teacher and sole survivor of the shooting, this play tackles the pedagogue’s suffering and struggles, as well as the unique relationship to his students.
Anagoor creates an impressive collage of images, sounds, film clips, and choreography that questions a humanist education’s potential to break the circle of violence. The internationally acclaimed Italian theatre collective Anagoor won the prestigious “Premio Rete Critica” in 2016. They now present a German version of their award-winning production.
We offer a follow-up workshop for this production.
