Event Details

Kafka's "The Trial" directed by Simon Eifeler is back in Accra as German-Ghanaian co-production!

In times of growing fears and resentments to all that is foreign, strange and alien, this fast and crazy theatre adaptation of the classic European novel “The Trial” is an exciting, inspiring and fruitful encounter with the unknown.
Director Simon Eifeler staged “The Trial” in the summer of 2016 in Accra with three Ghanaian actors. Fascinated and inspired by the power of the unknown as source of creative power and diversity, he staged the process once again in Düsseldorf with three German actors. These two versions of Kafka`s novel (written in 1914) then met in an intercontinental performance. First presented to a fascinated audience in Düsseldorf, Germany in November 2016, this production is now shown in Ghana. The Ghanaian and German actors play with, against und for each other.

A sparkling mash-up of two cultures, which could not be more different. Last-but-not-least, it is a cultural exchange between Ghana and Germany; between Accra and Düsseldorf.
