Der Tartuffe oder Kapital und Ideologie

By Soeren Voima
based on Molière and based on “Capital and Ideology” by Thomas Piketty

What if Molière’s conman Tartuffe had been around for Germany’s reunification? At Staatsschauspiel Dresden, Soeren Voima and Volker Lösch transfer this 17th century comedy to the late 20th century and retell it by the example of a group of people sharing a flat.
