crazy by the way: The word of Switzerland as the best country for Crazy is of Heiner Müller. He would have been able to count to its guarantee people the artist Dieter Roth – in the games, even the letters crazy: He was called sometimes, Diter Rot, and no one knows why.
otherwise, Roth (1930-1998) is a perfect template for Director Christoph Marthaler, is now in the Playhouse of the text construct "The cry (The Feel)". The title of the add-on "tears of the sea 4 still belongs to" – what are alluded to but very to a Marthaler-piece: "If the Alpine brain reddens, kill, free Swiss, kill." Two special cases have been found. We are in an Echo chamber.
"do you Feel actually, as a Swiss?", was Dieter Roth once asked in an Interview. "No, but I'll go with Swiss good," was his answer. Above all, Roth was a great traveller: from Zurich, where he spent his youth, via Bern, where he was trained as a graphic artist, more in the world, after Iceland, Germany, America. Everywhere Dieter Roth was home.
Above all, he traveled through all the areas of the arts: painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, Film, Video, music, typography, Design, architecture. Yes, Dieter Roth all. And wanted to can.
but most of all he wrote. Pictures of him were just a means to an end. "First of all, I want to live, and then I realized, this is best done with images," said Roth in an Interview. "And of course I wanted to be famous, and that is also with pictures best these days. But I can't represent with images, my anger, the grief."
A expression has the Write to Dieter Roth's. A poem begins like this: "liver dumplings, sit at home, / from drinking all the urine bottle. Pound bird flies by, shits on this mess." Or he made aphorism: "The poor audience can't you Think." Anyway: Dieter Roth made book on book. And sometimes there was the books also available in sausage form.
they were well received. "Yes, and with Writing, it is best of all," said Dieter Roth. "There are people who can cry when they read my texts, and laughing at the same time. I can't reach with images."
It is precisely this Sound that takes in Christoph Marthaler in his piece: It doesn't sound to Succeed and also Ungelingen (even if we know at all, what he does with it). The Interviews wanted to have transcribed Dieter Roth-and not always completely, preferably with all of the slips of the tongue, misunderstandings, everyday things – and also all the craziness that talking in there. And also in this theatre.
"The cry (The Feel)"
sounds like a legend. In the late 1980s, gave away Dieter Roth once two special editions of his writings of Christoph Marthaler. The title was: "The wines. The Think. Tears of the sea 4", and the Motto was: "Striding on the waves, or sunk in the waves, which is called "The life"". Marthaler moved now with Roth's books, from city to city, from Zurich to Basel, to Paris and Hamburg. And again and again break appeared pieces from these writings in his productions, preferred is a poem about a so-called "fatted calf". We are sure to have heard of this animal before. Now it comes to the O but-Ton "Schauspielhaus", the "highly public encounter between Roth and Marthaler". (bu)
