Jürgen Bartsch (Leon Stiehl)
Jürgen Bartsch killed four children when he was between 15 and 19 years old. In this monologue, the murderer has a conversation about himself: the victim and the perpetrator. About compulsions, misfortune and magic. The monologue constitutes the attempt of illustrating how Jürgen Bartsch became the exploited bitch of a voyeuristic society through absurdly oppressive childhood events.

Theaterdiscounter, or TD for short, is a theater located at Alexanderplatz with a year-round schedule of programming. The schedule of programming is dedicated to contemporary spoken word theater. Some 30 to 40 different productions, formats and festivals can be seen each season. To make this possible, TD cooperates with artists, theater collectives and partner theaters throughout Germany and internationally. At TD, experienced theater makers create theme-centric pieces of theater that expand aesthetic formal languages. As a theater and production location, we also provide a platform for the next generation of artists. A flexible space concept allows research into new presentation forms for live art and theater in all of its facets.
