About the piece:
Using VR glasses, the audience can immerse themselves in the memories of an actor who has become homeless in front of the impressive backdrop of the gutted Augsburg theater. In André Bücker's staging, text and reality enter into a special connection not only on the level of virtual reality. The completely empty building looks like a symbol for the time of the pandemic. “14 curtains” can be understood as both a homage and a swan song for the theater.
For the audience, the production offers a unique snapshot into the completely empty interior of the theater, which was undergoing general renovation, at the time of shooting. With this world premiere, Klaus Müller is also celebrating his 25th stage anniversary at the Augsburg Theater.Klaus Müller plays Schleef plays Minetti. In the gutted Great House of the Augsburg State Theater, the short monologue »14 Curtains« becomes a kind of evocation of ghosts. In the black-and-white shot, the empty house speaks to the long-time protagonist, who is now lonely. He only finds his language when he reaches the heart of the house, the stage. He feels the aura of the former triumphs and experiences their transience anew. The memories of the homeless actor fill the virtual space and make the stage as a mythical place almost physically tangible.
