Gorki Premiere: Die Salome (AT)

Salome

John the Baptist loses his head because Salome wished it so. She exploits her stepfather King Herod's desires in order to get revenge on John for rejecting her. Perversion and fundamentalism, a destructive mixture of diffuse fear and real power: Oscar Wilde recognized the material's potential in 1893, turning the misogynist biblical footnote into a somnambulist play about a society stumbling on the edge of the abyss. Ersan Mondtag searches for current intensifi cations in Salome: on the one side, the sexist and racist fundamentalists, on the other, a liberal society that can't handle its freedom. »The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity.« W. B. Yeats
