vatermord, bühnenbild: johannes leitgeb
»The audience is seated in front of a slanted cross-section into a modern block of flats. The orchestra sits on the ground floor. On the floor above there is a mute family in its training suits sitting in front of the TV set. They are not aware of the family drama developing on the floor above them.«
Wiener Zeitung, December 2000

»Hannes Leitgeb tinkered him a literally oblique stage design and put the unholly family in the chaste textile wrapping of the 50ies.«
