Fernweh - aus dem Leben eines Stubenhockers

Neuköllner Oper, Berlin, 2012

We are in a radio studio. The radio play “Stubenhocker” is being produced by Hermann Bohlen. In the studio nextdoor, a travel magazine is on air and in Studio P4, George Crumb’s piano songs are being recorded. The parallel stories begin to mix. The studios are pleasantly cool. It’s summer outside. Everybody wants to escape from everyday life – only where to go? What is foreign in a world where you can always see everything on google street view before you even go there? Isn’t it better to stay at home and go to bed when you have wanderlust? The speakers and musicians in the studio make a radical decision. They embark on a fantastic journey to experience the ultimate thrill.
