»An evening that begins strangely, ends strangely and leaves the audience asking questions. Worth seeing.« FAZ; »A self-congratulatory performance one cannot take seriously. Not a night that you can’t have missed« DIE WELT; »… a stroke of genius…«, DIE ZEIT.
Bernhard Dechant announces his work with these and similar newspaper quotes. Are they real or fake? No annoying blurbs, no precise announcements, all participants have gone undercover, nothing is known in advance. It’s only clear that the actor and director Bernhard Dechant will give a performance. Alone and only once! Produced and directed by him.
