Lorry 39


Lorry 39 | musiktheater | SWR 2

The work has been chosen for a grand screening at the Filmfest Weiterstadt on August 13th at 8:00 PM.

Why Lorry 39 is a piece of music theater. Lorry 39 is an artistic exploration of the dismay and anger left by the news of the tragic event of October 22 and 23, 2019. The incomprehensible agony in the dark, blazing hot container; the lies and compulsions that led to this journey in the first place; the fatal consequences of small omissions, coincidences and mistakes; the angry disappointment that after Parndorf something like this could happen again. In the face of this, even the language of protocols fails – the music takes over and music theater emerges. There, anger, disappointment and speechlessness become a kind of tension, of artistic discrepancy, which becomes the motor of the music theater, and which offers the possibility of awareness and discourse without having to struggle for answers.
