About

Das Theater der Wiederholungen [The Theatre of Repetitions], Bernhard Lang‘s (b.1957) magnum opus, is divided into three large sections, with narratives set in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries respectively.
 
This music theatre piece uses texts by De Sade, Burroughs and extracts from the Nuremberg trials. The title, Theatre of Repetitions, refers to the work of the philosopher Gilles Deleuze and in content it is about ‘a possible history of atrocity’.
 
The three parts deal with historical events, which Lang transcends by means of his compositional principle of ‘Difference and Repetition’ - through which this work achieves, in the face of the most current political developments and relapses into old nationalistic patterns, the most highly charged artistic and political effect.
