THERE WAS A DESIRE WITHIN ME TO FALL DOWN
Ensemble actor Mario Fuchs and percussionist Martin Gantenbein invite you on a literary and musical bar tour through the meditative intellectual landscape of the writer Robert Walser. Drop in and discover which colour matches which emotional mood and whether it’s a good thing when you’re eating a sausage for greed to triumph over patience. Being able to observe the small but important things in life requires the calm but voluptuous eye of someone with time on their hands. Strolling in the fresh air but also sitting in a bar over a glass or two, thoughts may wander and logical connections be unravelled – which can lead to some highly amusing conclusions.
Following its premiere in the Monkey Bar in March this production will be presented at a range of venues in the Basel region.
