One hundred years after the outbreak of World War I, commemoration was indicated by the history of the Festival’s founding itself. In 1917, Max Reinhardt wrote in his founding manifesto: “Art, especially theatrical art, has not only held its own during the ravages of this war, but it has proven that its existence and maintenance are among the most indispensable necessities.” Sven-Eric Bechtolf’s drama programme was devoted almost entirely to the outbreak of the First World War, 100 years ago.

Several thousand crystals decorate the Lover’s new dress in the 2014 Jedermann production. Seductive red, a skin-tight corsage and 32 metres of hemline are the defining elements of the creation. Scarlet-red flowers made of fabric sparkle with crystals reminiscent of dewdrops. In painstaking detail work, the crystals were stitched onto silk satin and silk muslin.

Sometimes small miracles really do occur on the sidelines of major theatre productions – miracles that are unforeseeable and which one certainly cannot count on, and yet ultimately they give the whole project its uniqueness and its charm, beyond all purposeful efforts. That is what happened during the new production of Jedermann.

The Forbidden Zone is a powerful new work about women, science and war in the first half of the twentieth century. Conceived by the director Katie Mitchell, working together with an extensive team of her regular artistic collaborators, this is contemporary theatre in a cinematic form, with screen images being created live on stage in real time. The drama moves at thrilling speed between a range of locations in Europe and America and events in 1949 and 1915.
