PEAK WHITE – Wirr Sinkt Das Volk

stage production at „Theater und Orchester Heidelberg“. Music written by Lukas Lonski.

A few old men dressed in white dragging their drip stands along the aisle of a nursing home. Who is taking care of them now that the last nurse quit her job? And who takes care of the German culture if fraternities belong to the past? Are the old white men the last ones of their kind? Has the nightmare scenario of the „New Right“ arrived and has the full exchange of people taken place?

PEAK WHITE is looking closely at society’s fears and enemies at the present time from a future point of view. The future citizens are yearning for identity, reconciliation and home but are sucked into a maelstrom that doesn’t discern the inside from the outside.

Berlin-based theatre director Kevin Rittberger was born in 1977 in Stuttgart and has been writing and directing plays for renowned venues such as „Staatstheater Stuttgart“, „Deutsches Schauspielhaus Hamburg“, „Deutsches Theater Berlin“ and many more, mostly staging his own texts and projects. In 2011 he was nominated for the „Mülheimer Dramatikerpreis“, a well-known German drama award.

We’re very happy to announce that the incidental music in this play was written by Lukas Lonski of „Lonski & Classen“ who also co-wrote the music for the play „Radio Cooperative“ by Kevin Rittberger (staged at the Weimar National Theatre) together with Laura López Castro and Felix Classen.
