freie sicht aufs mittelmeer

Here’s an interesting production playing at the Theater Basel.

The stage is the streets of Basel…
I saw an interview with Dani Levy, and I’m planning to go see the show.

[Update Saturday Oct 30] I managed to get hold of a ticket despite the fact that the show is sold out for the season. Sometimes it helps to voice your leisure plans at work…

The play starts in the courtyard of the city prison. Headphones and rain capes are distributed. And then the entire set, audience, sound and light engineers move from building to building in the St. Johann’s Quartier of Basel. Video and live scenes mix. And there’s an excellent use of the real setting. At times I felt I was witnessing real disputes as a passer-by, in other cases I felt I was watching a movie.

Highly recommended. A great show! Different but not too experimental. Plus you get to know another part of Basel…
