The Revolution Devours Its Children!

Schauspiel Graz

23 November 2018

Inspired by Georg Büchner’s Danton’s Death
Directed by Jan-Christoph Gockel

Co-production of Schauspielhaus Graz/Austria with Africolognefestival

“Can we learn revolution?”
— Jan-Christoph Gockel, Director

Put people out of the theatre into the alley: the wretched reality!” is one of the leading thoughts in Danton’s Death. Schauspielhaus Graz follows this request: a group of artists and theatre-makers will travel through Burkina Faso for one month in search of traces of the revolution which occurred there in 2014 and to confront it with the play Danton’s Death by Georg Büchner.
