K!R: Theater RollenTausch Großes Ensemble - TOP DOGS

The big ensemble of the RollenTausch theater group of the Kulturinitiative Rotenburg starts the theatrical season under new direction of Gaby Reetz. "After the successful play" Der zerbroch'ne Krug "at the beginning of the year, the group on the whole was tempted to take on a more modern staging," says Reetz. TOP DOGS is played after the drama by Urs Widmer. Reetz considers the teamwork important and explains, "It is a lot of fun to develop and discuss ideas for the implementation together with your own interpretation approaches. Just to have an exciting time too! And the topic is more relevant than ever.
Urs Widmer tackles the topic of unemployment from an unusual side. TOP DOGS is not about the simple people, the underdogs, but about top dogs, top executives from the management levels of our business world. What happens when the dismissors suddenly become dismissals, asks Urs Widmer and tells in his play stories of those "economic kings" who were recently still at the levers of power and now find themselves in a seminar for unemployed managers.Rezetz stresses, "The characters are usually named after the respective actors in the various performances. However, the role-reversal crew did not take their own name, but hinted a little at prominent managers. " Thus, the audience become protagonists with a high recognition value.
In their sudden helplessness, they are not unlike the dethroned Shakespearean kings, who overstimulated the game of power and eventually themselves became victims of their relentlessly success, power and ownership oriented policies. Without a job, nothing remains but an empty shell.
