At the Burgtheater

Die Orestie

by Aeschylus

Revenge is the predominant theme of this trilogy of ancient Greek tragedies by Aeschylus — but in the last part, Goddess Pallas Athene puts an end to the mechanics of killing and helps give birth to Democracy. Director Antú Romero Nunes narrates the Oresteia in a compact and thrilling version with seven actresses from the perspective of the Furies.

Eines langen Tages Reise in die Nacht
Long Day's Journey Into Night 

by Eugene O'Neill

Eugene O'Neill's Pulitzer Prize-winning play recounts one day in the life of the Tryone family in a seaside town in Connecticut. Andrea Breth dissects O’Neill’s semi-autobiographical tragedy of a family trapped in a nightmare of addiction, alcohol and hopelessness.

At the Kasino

europa flieht nach europa
europa escapes to europe

a dramatic poem in a series of tableaus
by Miroslava Svolikova

A simultaneously contemporary and timeless text, this is a narrative about European self-assurance and self-estrangement. What does a continent dream of? At first, of a fulfilled Utopia, that contains justice, equality and peace. But what follows? Colonization, Christianization, class struggles, and wars over and over again. Miroslava Svolikova presents the chronology of our continental history as a farce.
