Münchner Kammerspiele – selected productions
The Münchner Kammerspiele is one of Germany's most important and storied theaters. Together we will attend three plays which are either performed or surtitled in English. Each theater visit will be prefaced by a session to help prepare the viewer for the performance and followed by another session devoted to discussion and analysis of the production. When possible, members of the Kammerspiele will join the class to lend an insider's perspective on the theater's repertoire and creative choices.

Mitschnitt und Entschuldigung

anlässlich der Veranstaltung „König &“ am 12. November 2018

Am 12. November 2018 fand in der Kammer 3 der Münchner Kammerspiele eine Diskussionsveranstaltung aus der Reihe „König &“ statt, in der Kasper König als Moderator angesichts des vehementen Rechtsrucks in unserer Gesellschaft mit den Künstler*innen Cana Bilir-Meier, Wilhelm Klotzek und Henrike Naumann zum Begriff „Heimat“ und seiner Tauglichkeit für die Kunstproduktion und den sie begleitenden ästhetisch-politischen Diskurs ins Gespräch kommen sollten. Dieser Versuch hat sein Ziel verfehlt. Hierzu trugen Äußerungen des Gastgebers bei, die als herabsetzend insbesondere gegenüber (Post-)Migrant*innen verstanden werden können. Kasper König hat sich bei der Künstlerin Cana Bilir-Meier entschuldigt. Matthias Lilienthal, als Intendant der Münchner Kammerspiele, entschuldigt sich dafür, dass in einer von ihm verantworteten Veranstaltung Formulierungen gewählt wurden, die sowohl Cana Bilir-Meier als auch (Post-)Migrant*innen in Deutschland beleidigt haben. Eine Diskussionsveranstaltung zum Thema ist in Planung.

No Sex on Sunday

with Thomas Hauser, Christian Löber, Stefan Merki, Annette Paulmann, Benjamin Radjaipour, Franz Rogowski

According to surveys by the Japan Family Planning Association, sex no longer matters to half of all Japanese couples. What’s more, almost 50% of 18 to 24-year-olds have never had sex. “I’m attracted to some of my girlfriends, but I’ve learned to live without sex. Emotional entanglements are just too complicated. I’m not into that,” as an article in The Guardian quotes one young man as saying. “People seem to have concluded that the satisfaction they get from sex is lower than the effort required,” says Masahiro Yamada, Professor of Family Sociology in Tokyo. Is this state of affairs a systemic failure, or is it driven by a fear of real-life intimate moments with an actual counterpart — something that seems much simpler in the virtual world? Are relationships just another stress factor for people exhausted by long working hours, or does this version of “I would prefer not to” embody a subversive act in the face of a male-dominated culture of desire? Director Toshiki Okada and his theatre group chelfitsch celebrated their first international success in 2004 with the play “5 Days in March”, in which two young people flee from the outside world into a ‘love hotel’, primarily to have sex for five days. In his third production at the Münchner Kammerspiele following “Hot Pepper, Air Conditioner and the Farewell Speech” and “Nō Theater”, Toshiki Okada now narrates the tale of young and not-so-young people, who sing love songs in a karaoke bar without physically touching each other.

The next shows are on November 11, December 12 and December 19.
