Was just thinking about this production again today and yours is one of the few English reviews of it… You missed my favourite part of the scene where Marianne is discovered in the nightclub — which is that her father, who has been carrying around balloons the entire play, lets them go as he is shocked out of his grief for his dead wife by the sight of his daughter.

Berlin, Day 2: Geschichten aus dem Wiener Wald (Horvath/Thalheimer), Deutsches Theater

Michael Thalheimer, the director, is well known for his extremely compressed versions of old plays, for textual work that aims to boil down the text to an essence of sorts. This website uses cookies to provide you the best possible experience. But whereas in the other Thalheimer shows I know, lines are delivered mostly at breakneck pace and physical actions are often separated sharply from speechhere the pace was rather more relaxed.


But when Marianne appears on the nightclub stage, a dense confetti rain starts falling, turning the scene into a bizarre colourful and shiny snowstorm through which her figure, wearing only a bra and a very wide skirt wanders until she reaches centre stage, where she signs a popular song and strips down to her waist. Wichmann even had multiple moments where she seemed to inhabit the text with more abandon than the rest of the cast.

Oskar forgives Marianne and plans to marry her after all and Alfred goes back to his old flame, the wealthy tobacconist Valerie.

Thalheimer has always been a master not simply of compression and speed, but of switching registers radically, from extremely fast to near-catatonic. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. The opening of the show is one of them, and perhaps the most remarkable instance.

The contrast between the bare stage before and the beauty of the nightclub scene almost seemed to suggest that in her very destitution and despair, even as she has to sell her body to feed herself, Marianne has achieved a kind of autonomy to which she can only hold on for a few moments longer she winds up in jail on false charges right after thisand for which she will be swiftly punished with marriage to Oskar and a reintegration into her place in society.


When her father discovers her working as a nude dancer in a night club in an effort to earn some money, he indignantly disowns his wayward daughter.
