Munich national theatre wants to be creative with the Corona-crisis | culture

The Munich national theatre in the summer break and want to on 24. July in the new season to start. Director Christian Stückl makes it clear: "We do not want short-time work – we want to play."

no, the accusation, in the Munich national theatre, Mr shear transmission pause, don't want to leave Christian Stückl sit up. And at least since Wednesday morning, it is clear how wrong that criticism is. The Director has used the Corona-forced break to work with his Team on a Plan for the urban stage. And this Plan is: "We do not want short-time work – we want to play. So we need to develop a program for this Situation.“

The national theatre is now in the playtime break

The ideas of his house has presented the 58-Year-old now – and have it all, because they are creative, flexible and take into account the health: Stückl summer theatre. The people's theater is already now in the season break and want to on 24. July in the new season to start, around two months earlier than usual.

to wait for The press conference, the Prime Minister Markus Söder of the debunking set "For culture only" language, is not 24 hours, because Stückl power in the Foyer of his theatre on the Brienner Straße is clear that it has a different way to go: "It's a terrible condition is to wait, to wait. I don't have it anymore.“ To make Online program, like many other houses, is nothing for him. "I find it exciting, what a lot of colleagues on the Internet. But my stage is not.“ So other ideas were needed. Because: "If I have to wait until the fall, by burning me with the backup generator."

Five-Corona-grade productions to be prepared

At the same time, Stückl wants to avoid a "quick shot". To 14. June is the national theatre is therefore closed; the break should be used to with the authorities, the Hygiene and protection concept for the rehearsal and presentation of operating to finalise. 15. June could be re-tried. Five productions are planned for the new season, which allow for a flexible game plan. Be developed these "Corona-compatible" evenings with the Ensemble; will stage Mirjam Loibl, Sapir Heller, Simon Solberg (he is about Joseph Strife "India"), Abdullah Kenan Karaca, as well as the master of the house himself. The two Directors are to celebrate as the First Premiere. What are the pieces you develop, is currently being discussed.

The time in the people's theatre on 24. July start

The season to 24. July start. "When all the time, with the beginning of the summer holidays, we want to be back," says Stückl. The special feature: The art Director will build, in the courtyard, which is currently not used in part of the Restaurant mad as a free-bar area, a stage. Up to 50 people could sit here, in compliance with the spacing rules. Also, the large hall with a capacity of around 600 guests, will be rebuilt for the new season: Every second row of chairs is removed, between each viewer three free places to stay. "We prefer to play in front of 100 people, than that we are not playing at all."

short productions are Scheduled for 60 to 90 minutes long, so you go without a break on the stage. The reduced contact opportunities within the audience – perhaps two ideas of the day are even possible. In addition, the theatre people to think about a children's program (such as drawing courses with cartoonists); the "Sundowner" on the open air stage to support musicians suffer how many other free artists, under the current situation, financially especially. Possible all of this is because the staff at the people's theatre, pull – you, the Director wishes to thank this morning several times. Stückl's talking about his Director colleagues to the Conscience: "We are in the city and state theatres in a safe Position. This should not lead us to do nothing.“

"I want to be not hushed up," says Christian Stückl

Still everything is only an idea, he admits. "We are depending on that policy can play." He has already convinced: Anton Biebl. "We don't want to go longer on vision, but flexible solutions, such as a Theatre in these times can look like," says Munich's cultural officer and would also like to thank the employees, "embarking on this Experiment." It is striking to think of how little the political operation is currently the arts and culture. Christian Stückl annoys the. "I don't want to be hushed. That's not possible. Maybe the culture has not the same Lobby as the football, the Catholic or Protestant Church. But I don't let me put on dry ice. I want to VAPE.“ A Stroke Of Luck. Because the potential is so there.
