Author Bernd Freytag, director Jacob Höhne, the RambaZamba Ensemble, and numerous guests teamed up to develop a play about the human dream of becoming a creator of new life. The fact that this new creature – this Golem – cannot be controlled is a reflection of our own fears and dystopian visions.

The legend of the Golem continues to inspire numerous artists to this day. According to the legend, Rabbi Loew of Prague created a Golem in the 16th century, and this Golem is said to still live in a room without a door today, whereby he emerges from this room every 30 years. The Golem, who is made of clay, is a human-like creature that does not speak. The Golem is very big and strong and can perform tasks. The Golem is not complete, however, as it has no soul. As Heiner Müller wrote, the Golem cannot die because the dead come back. This condition ensures a certain kind of freedom.

The Golem, this fantastic mass, presents itself to us through the interaction of different forms of art. In the beginning, for example, the Golem only consists of different individual pieces. These building blocks initially act in separate spaces and then grow until they unite to create a large organism of language and the body. As Einar Schleef would say, these parts become a “stage landscape of the body and language” – they become a giant.

(Please note that this production of “Golem” has two parts. Part A – the spoken theater part – will be performed on the rehearsal stage, while Part B – the dance theater part – will be performed on our main stage after a 20-minute break between the two parts.)

Produced with the support of the Capital Cultural Fund and funding from the City of Berlin, Senate Administration for Culture and Europe, as well as funding from the Deutscher Paritätischer Wohlfahrtsverband welfare association and the Stiftung Deutsche Klassenlotterie Berlin charitable organization.

“Worth seeing for the dance section alone – with its poetic projections, Leo Solter’s inventive live sound und Zora Schemm’s commanding stage presence – the newly created golem reflects our fears and dystopian fantasies.“ Sandra Sarala, EXBERLINER
