Sehnsucht hinter Masken

All the things that you see here on stage was actually a stage by a colleague of mine. A very fine film maker and set designer. And it looks just like a Hollywood style movie set. With the landscape as a beautiful backdrop, which is exploited for the scene. Commercials work that way. Postcards look like that. But I wanted an ecstatic detail of that landscape. And the whole piece is about somethings ecstatic, something wild. Something like in our wildest nightmares. It has something that is beyond our average experience.
