Meghan and Harry have just finished their last appearances as the Royals. Now you try it, away from the prescribed roles. The king's children, Leonce and Lena, the German playwright Georg Büchner in the eponymous play by 1836, the now, at the Schauspielhaus of Zurich, is running, go the opposite way: you want to escape the dictated Bridal velvet Regentenamt, flee their farm and meet each other undetected in an hour, where they know nothing about each other. You fall in love, Bang, marry, and wind up as the designated heir to the throne couple in the Royal court. The fate has you tricked.
Leonie Böhm, 1982 in Stuttgart, born in Heilbronn, who grew up in Zurich in-house Director, reads the bitterness was lust game from the 19. Century as a template for an exploration of our mentality. "Especially here in this very rich city in the rich West, you live like at the Royal court," she says in our interview before the Premiere. "Just because we are rich and powerful, we have to immerse ourselves even more in büchner's offer of a "descent into hell of self-knowledge", as once Christa Wolf on Büchner-formulated texts."
What if you move the vending machine by way of the everyday life: a successful, but empty? Böhm zooms for answers on the Psyche of the modern man.
What is today, a meaningful task? How to deal with his self-hatred, self-loathing and self-pity – the typical Weltschmerzlerei of the prosperity neglected Westerner? The narcissistic melancholy? What if you move the vending machine by way of the everyday life: a successful, but empty and untouched? Leonie Böhm zooms for answers to such questions on the Psyche of the modern man. The Patriarchate has him flushed up, feminism unsettled him.
Five actors – three of which Böhm has worked often – type "Leonce and Leonce". In a time in which the role of the man is not as, of course, you will be sharper and more painful, the fundamental doubt as to what you or man does. "It affects not only men, of course," emphasizes the Director. "Every woman could be Leonce." But in your Research, the results from the most personal to the players to the most General, not a Gender-voltage into decline, she decided for a Only-Men Ensemble.

First, they had studied English and art at a secondary school teacher, wanted to step into the footsteps of her mother; her father was a teacher at the Waldorf school, who had also visited them. After the first state examination, the young woman is not moved, however, to the visual arts, graduated in 2011 as a master student of Urs Lüthi in Kassel – but already the allure of the Performative and the dialogical discovered. So a third study was announced: acting and directing at the theatre Academy of the University of music and theatre in Hamburg. In the framework of the studies resulting Horváth-work "Kasimir and Karoline" catapulted Leonie Böhm equal to the limelight; also in Zurich, the fancy Soiree was to see (click here for critique).
game with the old dramatists
Why the concentrated decidedly anti-Patriarchal, and if possible democratically-working Director of a new Generation to the classic materials of the white men? "I build on the history of reception: The actor and the audience know the material. And we can play in his hall room in order. Purely legally, this is only possible in the case of old texts. Thus, büchner's Satire here is a surprising, hopeful turn." And unfortunately, the reception history of the literature had been carried out so that only a few pieces of authors of earlier centuries would have such an Echo chamber.
it is Crucial for Leonie Böhm but her own female perspective on the dramas. "My men on the stage to be vulnerable to make feminists." Conversely, the Director has let in November, Schiller's "robbers" as cheerful robber of the interior, by the Munich chamber games vertebrae.
"That the audience experiences his own ability to act, and encourages feel for the change: This would be my dream."Leonie Böhm, in-house Director in Zurich
"The self-overcoming, the breaking of Patterns, and ground-in expectations for yourself is the urpolitische Moment of every theatre and with the theatre people. The audience experiences his own ability to act, and encourages feel for the change: This would be my dream," admits the mother of a twelve-year-old son and a five-year-old daughter, the visit, both in Zurich, Rudolf Steiner Institution. In Hamburg they had been at the Waldorf school, and the public school here was for the family is not an Option. Böhm's Partner is also a long-standing colleague, in "Leonce and Leonce," it's for conceptual cooperation and stage design responsible.
Leonie Böhm has brought their own little social microcosm that are used in the Limmat city that carries them. The eight House Directors, and Directors need to your to grow up together, she admits. In the sample plan ruckelts sometimes, and with the city, the Newcomers shy a little bit. But as you're New so open and courageous and at the same time on the familiar, collaborative Work can be understood, rips all of them with. Also himself.
