The Hills are Alive
Created by and with performances of Nikolaus Habjan and Neville Tranter
Mr. and Mrs. von Trüb’s twilight years could be so beautiful, if it weren’t for this giant wall that suddenly runs through the middle of their garden. Who would have thought that the campaign pledge of a certain US president would have real-life consequences? Recent developments in the land of the free worry the retired couple, so they hastily decide to go back home to Austria. However, the re-naturalization turns out to be more complicated than expected. As the couple gets caught in the quagmire of bureaucracy, the only person who can help them is a politically influential compatriot who has already solved many a problem as the Terminator.
In this bitter and amusing performance which negotiates current developments in migration policy, award-winning character actors Neville Tranter and Nikolaus Habjan offer their own imaginative take on the world-famous musical “The Sound of Music.”
The production is presented in cooperation with the FIDENA Figurentheaterfestival Bochum (May 7-18, 2022). For more information, please visit www.fidena.de
