IN THE HISTORICAL WAREHOUSE DISTRICT
"DER HAMBURGER JEDERMANN"
Now in its nineteenth year, "Der Hamburger Jedermann"
is being performed on stage every weekend between the 12th
of July and 25th of August 2013 in the eerily apt backdrop
of the Speicherstadt warehouse district. Written by Michael
Batz, the play revolves around the "everyman" theme
that was first written some 500 years ago. Hamburg's
Free Port provides the perfect setting for this timeless
tale of possession and identity, of money and responsibility,
of death, the devil, and the final journey. Re-told from
a fresh angle, this "serious comedy" takes
full advantage of the history oozing from the Speicherstadt.
Open-air-theatre at the water's edge, in the very heart
of a commercial centre that pulsates with tradition –
irony and satire packaging a grim parable that has been updated
to reflect the late Twentieth Century. "Jedermann"
is played by Robin Brosch, who you may recognize from television;
it is in German, but an experience worth taking in, even
if you understand very little of what is actually said.
The 21 performances in 2013 start at 8 p.m. on Friday, Saturday
and Sunday evenings, by the Sandbrücke, at the heart
of the largest warehouse complex in the world.
