Péter Závada: A széplélek (Der Schöngeist)
The performance is set as a fictional guided tour in the Schloss Neuschwanstein.
Does it neccesarily lead to a tragedy, if a king is not violent enough to reign? Is attraction to fascination is attraction to power at the same time? Can we as artists or art lovers turn away from politics without consequences? The „Schöngeist” is observing the complicated relationship between history, politics and aesthetics from the german romanticism trough the III. Reich until today – pervaded by the music of Wagner. This is the castle. Please, enter.
