In the 21/22 season, director Sahar Rahimi will stage a play by the Basel playwright Anne Haug. It was created in the context of the play Labor 20/21.
A cruel piece of home
Last season, Basel author and actress Anne Haug was Theater Basel's resident playwright. During this time, she created a text that tells of returning home, revenge, money and class differences. A woman returns to the village of her childhood and seeks out her oldest enemy. In the encounter with him and other former companions, she seeks the solution to all her problems. What was supposed to end in a terrible reckoning becomes a personal confrontation with the eternally valid contract of one's own origins. The director is Sahar Rahimi, founding member of the collective Monster Truck, with whom she works at the intersection of performance and visual art.
