Katzelmacher. If it wouldn't be about love

by Rainer Werner Fassbinder –– Direction: Eugen Jebeleanu

Producer: German State Theatre Timișoara (RO)

Frustration and boredom reign in a German suburb. But when the Greek Jorgos shows up, the little world turns upside down, sparking xenophobia, envy and hatred.

The play written in 1968 by author and director Rainer Werner Fassbinder paints a sober and radical picture of a society that relies on foreign workers but excludes them from society. Katzelmacher is considered to be his first independent play. The film of the same title was a breakthrough for Fassbinder, who was only 24 at the time.
