Die Eingeborenen von Maria Blut

By Maria Lazar
Stage version by Lucia Bihler and Alexander Kerlin

Burgtheater, Vienna

Fear, superstition and defamation shape the incidents occurring in a village community. Lucia Bihler and her team have found an impressive language of imagery that already forebodes the horrors of an impending political transformation.
