KASPAR von Peter Handke (Barletti/Waas)
Can a human being be brought to identity through speaking? In the beginning, Kaspar is an autistic being with an immediate and infinite relationship with everything that surrounds him. At the end, Kaspar is brought to reality and he also knows what he has lost in this process. The play shows how somebody can be brought to speak through speaking.

Eine Koproduktion mit dem ItzBerlin e.V. mit dem TD
Lea Barletti and Werner Waas met each other many years ago in Rome. They have lived and worked together ever since: first in Rome, then in Munich, later in Lecce and now in Berlin. Together, they have made several plays and two children.
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.
