Warum läuft Herr R. Amok? (Why Does Herr R. Run Amock?)
Susanne Kennedy / Münchner Kammerspiele
Rainer Werner Fassbinder & Michael Fengler
Based on a movie directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Michael Fengler, Why Does Herr R. Run Amock? tells the story of an average man who does everything expected of him before ending up murdering his family. For her first invitation to France, Susanne Kennedy’s staging – bordering on installation art – separates the actor’s body from the voice reading the text, yielding unsettling and spectral presences of stark and paradoxical realism.
