Berg-Besteigerinnen in Binn

By Heinrich von Kleist.
English translation: Joel Agee.

Boy meets girl. Girl eats boy. A goth and gory myth of gender war, culture clash and lethal love.

Penthesilea Flyer

When Nietzsche meets Lou Salomé, he feels he has found 'a voice, for which I have waited and waited since childhood'. One year later, he has retreated to a remote mountain village, madly scribbling Thus Spake Zarathustra. And advising men to take a whip, when they go to women. Working exclusively from original texts, Playades Theatre Company explores what happened in that seminal year of 1882: philosophy versus reality, society versus individual fulfillment, man versus woman - and the hunger for life and knowledge that surmounts all contradictions.
