    Ulrich Tukur & Christian Redl, Rezitation
    Olena Kushpler Klavier

    "Vom Zauber einer verwehenden Sprache - Deutsche Gedichte und Balladen"

    Gedichte, Balladen und Texte von Goethe und Schiller über Heine und Fontane bis zu Brecht und Enzensberger
    Musik von Schumann, Liszt et al.

    Ulrich Tukur und Christian Redl wollen an die Anfänge, an den Ursprung von Theater erinnern: Den Text, die Sprache mit der man eine gute Geschichte erzählt. Neben ihren Lieblingsgedichten haben sich beide dazu noch eine fast in Vergessenheit geratene Form ausgesucht: Die Ballade. Wie der Kriminalroman lebt sie von Spannungsmomenten und Knalleffekten. Und wie in diesem verwandten Genre geht es immer um Mord, Ehebruch, Verführung, Kindsmord und unerwiderter Liebe. Nur mit ihrer Stimme und ihrer Mimik zaubern Tukur und Redl mit Texten von Goethe über Fontane bis zu Brecht und Enzensberger phantastische Welten auf die Bühne, die, weil es immer um Schicksale von Menschen geht, tief berühren. Die Pianistin Olena Kushpler reagiert am Klavier auf die Texte mit Musikstücken u.a. von Liszt, Satie, Schönberg und Schumann, die oft zeitgleich zu den Gedichten entstanden.
