Theater Kiel

Production 2018

"Ceresa is particularly interested in the relationship between art and reality, appearance and being. He begins this story in a star-studded nothingness in which the troupe of actors adds color to the life of a village community. But Canio falls in the game increasingly out of character. This is done on a vertical plane by aerial acrobats mirrored representing the dying roles of the performers. Brilliant!"





"Even the imposing prologue on the truths on- and offstage shows how strongly the production of Ceresa redirects here. Now everything is free imagination. Ceresa doubles the characters of this “polygon of jealousy” by acrobats who exemplify out of the magic box of the theatre trap door all the high-flying plans of the show theater world."

"For Fabio Ceresa is the occasion to whip up the big theater machine with cunning and desire. Should one describe everything that is elaborately balanced in the offer - from the magic box and the children's bicycle to dolls and wigs to the stars and the aerial acrobats high up? You would hardly find an end."
