ladies and gentlemen, dear friends!

„Everyone carries a room about inside him“, Franz Kafka wrote in his diary in 1916. Today, over a century later, we are delighted to be able to unlock the doors to a few such rooms for the eleventh time. All of them are different: more or less comfortable, lonely, captive, hopeful, forgotten, loving, desperate, waiting, consoling, playful or fighting. Already the first room is rather extraordinary – it belongs to Karl Rossmann, Kafka's fortune seeker, portrayed by Philipp Hochmair whom we welcome at Thespis for the second time. Monodrama is as alive and diverse as never before – and all that a world which threatens to become smaller and narrower. Solo performance is most probably the theater form of the hour to tackle isolation and egoism. It challenges us to take our time for the outrageous stories that one single life, often remote from our own, can write. And to cast one's gaze into a room that appears so alien and so very far from ours… We hope to have piqued your curiosity and look forward to your visit to the 11th edition of THESPIS. Yours sincerely,
