Die arabische Nacht
2 D, 3 H
UA: 03.02.2001 · Staatstheater Stuttgart · Directed by: Samuel Weiss
Based in a run-down high-rise somewhere in contemporary Germany, Arabian Night takes us into the lives, dreams and fantasies of five unique individuals on one enchanted summer's evening. Hans, the inquisitive caretaker, can't work out why the water has run dry above floor eight; he's gone to investigate - Fatima, the sensitive lodger, anxiously awaits her lover, Kalil, who is mysteriously trapped between floors in an elevator - Franziska, the dreamy amnesiac, falls asleep each night and forgets her day every day - And Peter, the romantic voyeur, trespasses through unlocked doors least of all expecting what he finds - All of their lives cross on this fateful humid night: an Arabian Night for the modern age.
