the double bass

Thursday, May 16|6 p.m.|Schauspielhaus (Studio)

Language: Polish, with english subtitles
Running time: approx. 60 min.


THE DOUBLE BASS is probably the most successful German-language monodrama of all time: Patrick Süskind’s play premiered in 1981 and has remained to this day an integral part of international theater schedules.

A 35-year-old introverted and visibly bitter double bass player from the opera orchestra gives insights into his life, his love for music and his instrument, and speaks about love in general. Initial eulogies for his instrument become increasingly fragile and end in a surprising turn of events…

Krzysztof Rogacewicz – actor, director and producer – is a graduate of the State Theater School in Wroclaw and co-founder of the MASKA Theater in Jelenia Góra. With THE DOUBLE BASS, he has taken part in numerous international monodrama festivals and won several prizes.
