Message from Director
Fear and Misery of the Third Reich premiered in November 2008 as one of the performances in the Brecht Drama Festival. Two years ago, we focused on how to do Brecht’s plays. This rerun, we entered the history of the Third Reich once again, with the experience from the premiere, to examine further the people and incidents in Germany under the sovereignty of this “maniac”.
Unhappy the land that has no heroes. No, unhappy the land that needs heroes.
After World War I, German people lived in pain and insults. Hitler and the Nazi became their hope. They could never imagine how Hitler betrayed them 12 years later. He even let Berlin and the whole German nation fall with him.
“If the German people is not strong enough and devoted enough to give its blood for its existence, let it go and be destroyed by another, stronger man. I shall not shed tears for the German people.”
This is Hitler’s preannouncement before he failed. In 1945, Hitler ordered to bomb everything into rubbles, leaving no chance for the German nation to recover.
We all know the ending of the Third Reich, and now we show you its beginning.
The Germany between 1933 and 1938…
The characters moan and complain to appeal through the actors. The actors are there examining the characters next to them and replaying 24 scenes with their “gest”.
