Episode 022

"Der alte Pfusch ist tot, wir glauben an den neuen!" / Herbert Fritsch: Manifest an der Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, Berlin.

The acting and circus troupe of director Herbert Fritsch conquers new dimensions with the work "Pfusch". With vigorous use of the body, voices, chaos and rhythm, and above all with improvisation and artistry, Fritsch and his troupe work in the opposite direction to traditional "stilt art". Fritsch builds on his previous work, starting with the legendary performance of BANDITEN by Jacques Offenbach in Bremen and the WOMAN IN THE MOON by Paul Lincke at Volksbühne. "Theatre without the compulsion of sense". With a strong emotional experience.

The battle cry and the motto of the evening "The old botch job is over/Der alte Pfusch ist tot. We believe in the new!" is borrowed from the Oberhausen Declaration of the Young German Cinema of 1962.

A lively evening. Unfortunately, a farewell. The team moves to another Berlin stage.
