About the piece:
Franz Kafka's story “Der Bau” (1923/24) focuses on a nameless protagonist who has created a complicated underground structure: a system of caves, passages and squares, the entrance of which is hidden under a layer of moss. He busily works on the improvement and fortification of his lonely and quiet home, collects supplies like treasures, delves into reflections and conversations with himself, which are repeatedly addressed to an absent counterpart whom he both misses and fears. Because the fear of an invisible enemy breaking into his shelter accompanies him at every turn and finally manifests itself in an inexplicable noise: a strange hissing, the source of which he cannot and cannot trace.
In addition to many possible interpretations, the building in Kafka's story of the same name can be read as a metaphor for a theater at a standstill, in which an actor undeterred pursues his activities, unseen and unheard of the world “out there”, and digs deeper and deeper into his own digs his own thoughts and imaginations.
Using the VR headset, the audience accompanies the protagonist on his underground forays and is taken to unknown and unusual places in the theater: a 360 ° view behind the scenes and deep inside the theater.
