Lindy Annis – USA/Germany

Lindy Annis' five short performances present an abridged history of the tragedy – from its roots in the classical Greek theatre, through the milestones of the American and Russian classics of the genre, up to the artist's own biography: ENCYCLOPEDIA OF TRAGIC ATTITUDES ("with the virtual presence of Xavier Le Roy"), Arthur Miller's DEATH OF A SALESMAN, LAZY LEGS (music: Frieder Butzman, text: Diana R., Maya S., Shannon M., Charlotte R., Tina S., Lindy A.), AUERBACH'S KELLER (Text: Lindy Annis, inspired by Goethe's FAUST), and Anton CheckhovÕs THE CHERRY ORCHARD. These five compact miniatures are a logical continuation of Lindy Annis' stage work. Since her arrival in Berlin in 1985, she produced over 50 performances, most of them one-actor plays, all in very simple English, and none of them longer than a Tom & Jerry cartoon.
