Before the performance began, thirty drummers whirl their mallets in the foyer of the Berlin Volksbühne, so that the rebellious sound penetrated your body. Pimped up in his expectation, one can then enter a dark theater room, but is given a Chinese flashlight in his hand. This allows you to shine the actors who are beginning to act in the background of the hall out of the darkness. Director Andreas Kriegenburg, Castorf's supporter for a theater of contradiction, has come up with all sorts of ideas to make Lew Lunz's premiere of the political spectacle "City of Truth" effective. The author was born in 1901 in St. Petersburg and died in Hamburg at the age of 23 is a late relative of Aristophanes, who wrote his agitatory attack against an abstract social utopia in 1923, when he began to distance himself from the revolutionary events in his home country, and, in his youthful zeal, simply extrapolated that a commune of absolute justice and equality was absolutely necessary That young Soviet Russia, represented by Trotsky and Lunacharsky, could not endure such ardent, naive-critical cabaret text, so that Lunz emigrated to Germany in 1923, is one of the tragic chapters of the failed attempt to live better without capitalist exploitation , which in the GDR 1988 by Hens chel-Verlag was premiered after 70 years in a moody interpretation, thanks to the agile theater company from Berlin's Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. [...] The play is without a doubt one of the literary assets of those who never stop striving for a better, fairer world. May there be many viewers who still consider impartial intellectual friction with social utopias to be human. In this respect, the unanimous approval was optimistic. (Source: Neues Deutschland)
