About the piece:
He has a name that everyone knows and that he never pronounces himself. For two thousand years his fate has been inextricably linked with that of Jesus Christ, whom they called the Messiah and yet nailed to a cross. But now he speaks - not as an excuse, not as a justification. But to persuade oneself to betray his best friend, master, savior. Judas can be charming, self-reflective, but he is also raging and desperate. He is a person like us and should also be a principle, living dualism - without light, no shadow, without Judas, no Jesus. A kiss branded on your retina that has changed the course of the world.
»Judas« premiered in Germany in 2007 and 2012, and since then the play by the successful Dutch author Lot Vekemans has been performed in numerous cities.
After Augsburg's »Judas« celebrated its premiere in the open air on the west choir stage in the summer of 2019 on the occasion of the 1000th anniversary celebration of the Moritzkirche and then experienced further performances in the hall of the Moritzkirche, the Augsburg State Theater is now showing Lot Vekemans' successful piece in various church rooms.
