We’ve got these great photos from the Returning to Reims rehearsals…
In Ostermeier’s typically multilayered production, set in a recording studio, an actress (Homeland’s Nina Hoss, a leading member of the Schaubühne ensemble) tapes a documentary voiceover based on Eribon’s memoir, and begins to reflect on her own background as the daughter of a union leader and activist. How has her personal history affected her place in the world? And as populism marches around the globe, does political activism still have a role to play? This world premiere may help us find the answer.
Returning to Reims opens at HOME on 5 July and runs until 15 July with Schaubühne Berlin and Théâtre de la Ville.
