Revolution, a play for two figures, focused on dialogue. No plot. The dynamics of the play results from the dynamics of the conversation. This conversation is – as conversations are – steered by a mixture of questions and answers, straight arguments, hard facts (whatever hard facts may be – one of the things questioned in the play), associations (as hovering as associations often are) and the intrinsic texture of the talk. Talk may or may not be a fight, a mutual investigation of a question, a vehicle to prove oneself or one’s world construction.
Revolution is a how and why things happen in our heads. Processed, stored, saved, dismissed, distorted, lost.

Culture, reality, things do not simply happen monadically in our mind, they are construed and constructed communicatively. Communication builds our world. This does not only apply to abstract concepts and entities, but also to the most concrete things. This is a basic awareness which the 20th century brought us and we are still (and will, for a long time) working on an understanding of how that operates. That’s what the play is about – it is a part of that investigation.
The “Neue Zürcher Zeitung” judged: “an attractive young piece diagnosis of our time.”
