"Rose Wars" (Rosenkriege) is a series of the Volksbühne. Gabriele Gysis staging of "Heinrich IV., 1 - Die Lohnarbeiter" is the second part of the Rose Wars project of the Volksbühne. The end is short and full of beauty. Even before the fight slackens, the rebel group sinks into the snow flurry, pulls the woolen blankets off the wheelbarrows they brought with them and watches the battle on video. Turmoil and slaughter from the "Falstaff" film by Orson Welles on four monitors, a tedious "What is honor - one word" on stage. Well, just like that, as a distant memory of Shakespeare's dream of "Henry IV." The first part of this drama could perhaps be told. (Source: taz Archiv)
