Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff present play News Crime Sports at Berlin’s Grüner Salon showing on December 7, 8 and 9.
“What do you want? Not this.” is the first line in the press release. The multilingual (English, German, French) drama is set “in a poorly rendered past where madness falls in waves as the passengers of a cruise ship fill the hours, weeks, and years that seem to unfold at once.”
The work is the first of four plays commissioned by the Grüner Salon that trace ‘the rise and fall of a city.’ Henkel and Pitegoff are Berlin-based artists who have been collaborating over the last decade, with a previous project including New Theater where they produced and hosted plays in a storefront in Kreuzberg.
