Piese de Fritz Kater

3 von 5 millionen
Kater dramatically compresses his version of this fairytale story about three unemployed south German men who set out to seek their fortunes in the 1920s. Chance places tickets to South American in their hands, but the economic crisis catches up with them there, and they are washed back to Europe. Always on the margins of existence, they laboriously make their way to Berlin. The second part of the play, is a painter’s manifesto about the search for authenticity in art and the pain of a life at loggerheads with the world. The last part, shifts the action to contemporary Germany and tells of an amateurish attempt at criminality by three former friends. After a raid goes wrong because the bank they want to rob has closed, they turn their attention to a small jeweller’s shop. Shots are fired. As they make their hasty escape, the three find their past catching up on them.
Heaven (to Tristan)
The play is set in East Germany, in a landscape that is waiting for the boom. From the heavens descends cosmic radiation that is millions of years old and produces black patches on photographic paper – otherwise, the silence is deafening. Below there are decaying cities and industrial landscapes. Across them crawl a little company of deracinated individuals.
We are blood
The author postulates a correlation between the body stricken by illness and natural disasters with social causes. In their different ways, both systems are putting up resistance to excessive interference from outside. 1985, an industrial landscape in Brandenburg: Tim, a gifted engineer, receives a lucrative offer to go to Burundi. Career or family? Yves, his pregnant girlfriend, a journalist censored and intimidated by the organs of the GDR state, despairingly wishes she could retreat into the private sphere. 2008, somewhere in the same area. Yves is highly committed to her work as a nurse at a hospital. She particularly takes the 15-year-old Justin, who is suffering from cancer, and Beni, whose brain was badly affected after a car accident, under her wing. Beni's sister, Lisa, returns to her old home. She meets Raffael and Tom, her former lovers. The two are both radicals, but hold diametrically opposed beliefs. One is an environmental activist who would resort to any means to halt the continued plundering of nature, the other is an entrepreneur who cares mainly about the bottom line and wants to build a gigantic leisure park for tourists interested in the cranes that live in the region.
We are camera
This third play in Fritz Kater's Homeland trilogy is the story of a flight, or the story of abduction of a family - a very private family story and at the same time a highly German political story. The play circles around a family trauma; December 31, 1969, New Year's Eve in a hotel in Finland. A staging-post in a flight from West Germany to East Germany. Ernst, the father, is a GDR spy in the Federal Republic. He travels with his family to Finland so as to reveal the situation to his wife, telling Paula that he will take her and their two children - Mirco and Sonja - to the German Democratic Republic. That night she is unfaithful to her husband with the fifth character in the play - a hotel page, a non-realistic theatrical figure whom the author calls superman/thalidomide skinhead/multiple personality.
Vremea dragostei, vremea morții (Zeit zu lieben zeit zu sterben)
The play tells of growing up under Honecker's communism. Part I - sex and drugs and Rock'n Roll in the seventies. Fragments of memory from a youth in the GDR. Which girl has the most beautiful breasts? Who can drink the most? Where are the limits? On the periphery are flight, betrayal, death. Part 2: a family story in slow motion. The uncle comes home after years in prison, takes the place of a woman's husband and her rowdy sons' father, who moved to the West at the end of the sixties. Never play the hero - is his lesson for the brothers. A school friend rebels - but they hold back, and in love too. Only when the younger brother wants to follow his father does he fall in love. He remains. Seven years later he is a soldier and his beloved is pregnant by the hated teacher. Part 3: After the Wall has come down. A man, father and husband, alone in a city he only came to so as to find work, falls in love with a mulatto woman serving in a canteen. The start of a chaotic relationship. He soon begins to fear he doesn't satisfy her. They skilfully wound one another. Outbursts of rage, journeys, separations, fresh starts - until she confesses that she always loved someone else. The three autonomous parts of this piece are spanned by a narrative telling of the death of great dreams and arrival in a lonely present day.
