The play has been rehearsed since January and the stage and props were built diligently during the Easter holidays. The equipment of this theatre play has quite a few surprises in store: the i-camp is dedicated to the connection between new media, technology and live performance. We have taken advantage of this! The performances will not take place during school hours, but every evening at 7:00 p.m. to prevent the young actors and spectators from missing any classes.
The play has been specifically written by Marc Alexander Haas according to the wishes of the actors for the ensemble. The setting is an old theatre that has been empty for years, but that is still inhabited by the shadows of figures that have been played once on stage. They are trapped in their roles that were written for them as well as in the customs and the language of the time in which their play had been set. Over time, however, the borders become blurred and the characters begin to meet each other outside of their plays. The central figure is Grimm, the personification of an actor itself, and the only character in the play, who can perceive himself as an actor and not just as a role. His ultimate goal is to finally escape from the theatre and to play on a different stage. When he finally manages to break free, the outside world starts pouring into the theatre, causing that things are getting out of hand eventually.
