On Meine Bienen. Eine Schneise, a piece that transcends all genres, by Händl Klaus with Musicbanda Franui

On a sunny summer day, just as a funeral was taking place in Innervillgraten in Eastern Tyrol, the beekeeper’s son Andreas Schett let a swarm of bees escape. The bees, which the boy had been supposed to watch, did not leave their hive for a nearby stone-pine or spruce, but set off in the direction of the parking lot, where the local company of marksmen was just paying homage to the dear departed. It was hot. Sweat was running down the faces and into the collars of the marksmen, buttoned tightly into their uniforms.

The drama program of the summer of 2012 transforms the Perner-Insel into a place of international encounters. Several productions will be shown this year in a foreign language, two of them are by British stage director Irina Brook: the guest performances of La Tempête in French, and Peer Gynt, produced especially for the Festival, in English. Sven-Eric Bechtolf, Director of Drama, describes how Brook manages to ignite the spark of enthusiasm regardless of any language barriers. The fact that both performances will have German subtitles provides additional assurance for all theater-goers at home in German.

Irina Brook rehearses "Peer Gynt"

published in: Drama

“I am quite convinced that if I admire and love my actors, they will be convincing on stage. After all, that is my task: to make these people glow.” The artist Irina Brook was born into a theatrical family. As the daughter of the stage director Peter Brook and the actress Natasha Parry, she has been in contact with theater all her life, and is at home on stages on both sides of the Atlantic. She has enjoyed her greatest success in France, although her native language is English. For Irina Brook, this switching between languages, cultures and theatrical forms seems to be as natural as breathing. For the Salzburg Festival, she is currently preparing Ibsen’s Peer Gynt. Peter Arp visited Irina Brook and her actors at a workshop in Paris.
