The disabled actor Bernd is rehearsing a contemporary social drama with a city theater ensemble. In it, he plays the role of the young, disabled Pascal. Bernd does not live up to the clichéd expectations his colleagues have of him. The situation increasingly escalates and emphatic theater-makers become in a short time "raging petit bourgeoisie".

TD und Heidelberger Theatertage
Verena Unbehaun, Sophie Nikolitsch and Cornelius Schwalm founded MariaKron in 2011. Since then, they worked continuously on own their theater projects: Sophie Nikolitsch as a dramaturg and writer, Verena Unbehaun as a performer and weriter, Cornelius Schwalm as an initiator and playwright. MariaKron works at the border between classical theater and performance – permanently looking for a language on stage that is immediate. MariaKron deals with political issues as well as with societal incidents – in that way mirroring/reflecting their own world and that of the audience.
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.
