Piese de Peter Weiss

Noul proces (Der neue Prozeß)
The play presents a surreal, hallucinatory look at the life of “Josef K.,” chief attorney in an enormous multinational firm that exploits both his idealism and his self-doubt in order to present to the world a public face that will mask its own dark and fascistic intentions. Fusing Marxist and capitalist perspectives in a manner that anticipates aspects of the current global market expansion, Weiss evokes a world in which nothing is private and everything is for sale.
Der Prozeß
adaptare dupa "Procesul" lui Kafka
Turnul (Der Turm)
Pablo grew up in a circus where drill and order to the main experiences of his childhood were. He soon rebelled against this restrictive, patriarchal system, for which he had to learn a variety of disciplinary measures on his own body - the repeated attempts to escape his difficult life in the circus more and more. Finally, he uses the opportunity to escape from the circus, but also the many years of perceived freedom can not fade the feeling of relief. And so Pablo returns as Mr. Niente, to free themselves from the shackles of the tower ...
Investigația (Die Ermittlung)
The play is divided into eleven "cantos". These are arranged by theme and depict the path of the victims from the ramp upon arrival at Auschwitz all the way to the furnaces, so that ever more gruesome aspects of the anonymous genocide are described. Weiss deliberately avoided embellishing elements. The stage is supposed to depict only a bald courtroom and every distraction from the witness reports are to be avoided. In the cantos, the author lets the fact-rich statements of the anonymous witnesses stand against the named defendants and former SS concentration camp guards. Unlike at the historical trial, only eighteen defendants stand before the court. The statements of several hundred witnesses at the actual trials are summarized in the play in the fictional but representative Witnesses 1-9. Two witnesses stand on the side of the defendants, the others are former prisoners, including two women. By anonymizing the witnesses, Weiss wanted to show that the names of the victims in Auschwitz eventually give way to just a number. The witnesses explain the atrocities committed at the concentration camp to the audience. Weiss sets the statements of the perpetrators, witnesses, and judges against each other so that the contradictions in the statements of the perpetrators are revealed. The open ending of the play corresponds to the author's intention to focus on the social responsibility of the individual even in a dictatorship.
Die Verfolgung und Ermordung Jean Paul Marats dargestellt durch die Schauspielgruppe des Hospizes zu Charenton unter Anleitung des Herrn de Sade
An oratorio dealing with the mass murder of Jews in the 1939-45 War.
Persecutarea și asasinarea lui Jean Paul Marat, prezentată de rupa de actori a ospiciului din Charenton, sub conducerea domnului Marchiz de Sade (Die Verfolgung und Ermordung Jean Paul Marats dargestellt durch die Schauspielgruppe des Hospizes zu Charenton unter Anleitung des Herrn de Sade)
Aflat la azilul Charenton, Marchizul de Sade pune în scenă o piesă care prezintă ultimele ore din viaţa lui Jean-Paul Marat, unul dintre cei mai radicali scriitori şi politicieni ai Revoluţiei Franceze. Alături îi stau pacienţii azilului de boli mintale, obligaţi să „interpreteze“ personaje cheie ale celei mai celebre revoluţii din istoria europeană, în faţa şi pentru distracţia înaltei burghezii pariziene. Acţiunea piesei lui Sade are loc în baia ospiciului, desfăşurată cu permisiunea domnului Coulmier, directorul stabilimentului, o întruchipare a dictatorului care îşi exploatează „supuşii” pentru atingerea propriilor interese: faima de a fi considerat un conducător progresist.
Asigurarea (Die Versicherung)
Poizeipräsident dă o petrecere mare pentru semnarea asigurării finale de toate nenorocirile posibile ale vieții, inclusiv de război, crimă și revoluție. Ceremonia aparent onorabilă este însă subminată de persoane subversive și copii obraznici, din nou, o metaforă pentru soluționarea standardelor. Oaspeții vor cădea pe bufet, vor fi mușcați de câine. O femeie este aproape călcată în picioare și e dusă cu promptitudine într-o clinica privată. Spitalul se dovedește a fi un loc de experimente pe oameni. În clinică, oamenii sunt uciși pentru distracție.
Diskurs über die Vorgeschichte und den Verlauf des lang andauernden Befreiungskrieges in Viet Nam als Beispiel für die Notwendigkeit des bewaffneten Kampfes der Unterdrückten gegen ihre Unterdrücker s
The play runs through the ancient Vietnam, draws attention to Chinese foreign domination, colonialism and Japanese occupation. With the proclamation of the "Democratic Republic of Vietnam" in September 1945, is part one to an end. He plays on a stage that is also geographically Vietnam: Rear right China is present, the left front is Laos and the south is on the ramp. The second part begins with the French defeat of Dien Bien Phu (1954). Even the war of the French, Weiss said, "was funded to 78 percent of America"; 1961 when Kennedy took over the U.S. presidency, the U.S. had already been deeply involved in the "greatest secret war in history."
Gesang vom lusitanischen Popanz
About Portuguese colonial policy.
Hölderlin
The life and times of one of Germany’s greatest poets. Following its opening in 1971 in Stuttgart, the play was staged numerous times in Germany and Switzerland, and as Robert Cohen explains in his introduction, it was “greeted by accolades as well as by intense criticism since Weiss had dared to revise the image of one of the great heroic figures of German Culture.” Weiss explains that he was motivated “to describe something of the conflict that arises in a person who suffers to the point of madness from the injustices, the humiliations in his society, who completely supports the revolutionary upheavals, and yet does not find the praxis with which the misery can be remedied.”
Nacht mit Gästen
The evil Jasper Ruddigore intrudes into the house of a family, intending to rob and stab its members; the father promises him a chest filled with gold; while the father fetches the chest, Jasper sleeps with his wife and after that he stabs her. The father stabs Jasper and jasper stabs the man. They all die and the children discover that in the chest there was no gold, but dried turnips.
Trotzki în exil (Trotzki im Exil)
The play deals with the fate of a revolutionary. This individual's fate is inseparably linked to the historical destiny of the revolutionary in the 20th Century. The real theme of Trotsky in Exile is the forty-odd years of contemporary socialist revolution, just as the theme of Marat-Sade concerns the bourgeois revolution. The main personae of the play are the Russian revolutionaries, and at their head Lenin and Trotsky. Their great antagonist, Stalin, hardly appears on the stage, but his dark shadow falls across a considerable part of the play. The Russian revolution is inseparably connected with the international revolution. So side by side with the Russian revolutionaries there appear foreign comrades-in-arms and other contemporaries from many countries. The action moves from Moscow to Siberia, from London to Brussels, from Petrograd to Paris, from Turkey to Zurich, from Grenoble to Norway, until it finally ends with the assassination in Cocoyan, a suburb of Mexico City.
