Menschenfeind (von J.-B. P. de Molière)
Bachelor Thesis: Direction & Acting at the Theatre Academy Hamburg
A room and two people who meet. In public - in front of us. On the one side, the misanthrope. His self-assertion is based on "being against it". On the other side, a social virtuoso who is doomed by the net she weaves. These are Alceste and Célimène. Alceste's love for Célimène is contradictory. His affection for her is a weak point in his ideology, which is based on logic, predictability and truth. Célimène shimmers. As a wondrously open hostess, she floats through her house - the moral space in which the play is set. In discourse, they try to approach the core of the contradiction between logic and feeling, word and deed, solitude and community.
