Lara Foot und Handspring Puppet Company

Life and Times of Michael K

South Africa, Germany
Theatre
Theater der Welt opens with South African director Lara Foot’s production of Life and Times of Michael K by the Nobel Prize-winning author J. M. Coetzee – in collaboration with the award-winning South African puppeteers of the Handspring Puppet Company and an ensemble of actors from Düsseldorf and Cape Town.
        When his mother wants to return to die on the farm where she grew up, Michael K embarks on a journey through a country shattered by the confusions of civil war. However, she dies shortly after they set off – and Michael must continue in an effort to take her ashes home. »In a violent world, Michael K is a simple prophet who seeks strength in his humanity and his deep connection to the earth,« says Lara Foot. »It’s a frighteningly beautiful story.«
