Leonce and Lena

Play by Georg Büchner  
Director: Andreas Herrmann  
Costume: Catherine Voeffray  
Music: Jacob Suske  
Lighting: Gérard Cleven

"Leonce and Lena" was Georg Büchner's only comedy. The rather constructed plot mixes fairy tales and political satire - the kingdoms after all are called Popo and Pipi. She combines carnivalesque joy of playing with philosophical reflections, farce and existential uncertainty. The central theme is - "Who am I?".
