Director Roger Vontobel and actress Jana Schulz have had a longstanding working relationship, which can be experienced in “What You Will”, “Richard III” and “The Nibelungen” at the Schauspielhaus Bochum. Their first joint production happened 12 years ago and can now be seen in the Kammerspiele: “[fi’lo:tas]” is the story of John Walker Lindh who made headlines during the war in Afghanistan because he fought on the side of the Taliban. Votobel’s interpretation of Lessing’s play, which he interspersed with Lindh’s original texts, received numerous awards and invitations to festivals.
