Christoph Marthaler is one of the most significant European directors of today. He creates performances in which music and words are in constant dialogue and anchors them in the scenery of daily life. Presenting ordinary figures in a shattered world, he touches on the human condition with empathy and humour. A master of slowness, irony and discrepancy, he has invented a scenic poetry, made of lyrics, songs and music.
