Biedermann and the arsonists

Šimon Voseček

“Max Frisch would have enjoyed watching the staging by the young stage director Béatrice Lachaussée: In the Hall of the Semper Depot, Ms. Lachaussée built a huge coal producing machine: the Biedermann couple sits there from the beginning on a heap of coal, still without recognizing the fire danger they put themselves in.”

„Béatrice Lachaussée and her Team managed to make a splendid debut with a tasteful and stringent stage direction in the style of the 1930’s. In the spacious Semper Depot, she created great atmosphere utilizing little means but with substantial and exact character direction.“

WIENER ZEITUNG, Daniel Wagner, 18.09.2013

„Along with the classical elegance of the 1920’s costumes (Nele Ellegiers), the stage design (Dominque Weisbauer) was strongly impressive as well as integrating harmonically well with Semper’s architectural language, very precise the drawing of the characters (direction: Beatrice Lachaussee): woman holding the stage powers!“
„A very fine affair.“
