Endgame / Berlin

  • Berliner Ensemble 1 Bertolt-Brecht-Platz Berlin, Berlin, 10117 Germany

Like in most of Samuel Beckett’s texts, Endgame deals with characters outside of society, waiting and looking in vain for something unknown in a nondescript, apocalyptical place. Its characters are bound towards each other by an invisible chain of co-dependency that knows no way out. Contrary to this bleak topic, it is a strikingly funny play with a number of comic elements, physical and verbal.

Endgame is Robert Wilson's 10th production at the Berliner Ensemble since 1998.

This poignancy and consequence. This concentration. This severity. This humor. ... No sentimentality, but the echo of a world in turmoil.
