Using the technique of montage, and in a radical new language, Alfred Döblin created a polyphonic world that captures the city and its life in a remarkable way. Sebastian Hartmann’s production provides space for the unique form of the novel, the multiplicity of voices and the different narrative forms. He depicts a human caught up in the fabric of society, an individual fighting against himself and others. It is the essence of existence – love, betrayal, death – that is portrayed in a symphony of language, images and music.
