Alfred Dorfer - and...

What will happen now, he asks? The mysterious play commissioned by a theatre director has brought movement into the life of Alfred Dorfer's stage character. And: Now the move is imminent. One man, one room, two banana boxes. An empty room, full of memories. What's next? In the best case the forwarding agency. The power that creates change for the time being. And this is what Dorfer's protagonist believes in: the positive power of change. If "moving" means change, is every change at the same time a move for itself? The neighbours are left behind. Different people, shaken by relationship trouble and other folly, degenerated into caricatures of themselves through grandiose failure and the search for a way out of banality. In his new solo programme, Alfred Dorfer shows snapshots of departure and arrival. Episodes from the neighbourhood serve as windows to the world and also allow a glimpse into a future in which idealists are finally understood as useful idiots. Alfred Dorfer acts virtuously in the parallel worlds he has conceived, plays with roles and perspectives and presents a fast-paced and very complex one-man theatre. 

Alfred Dorfer from Vienna is one of the most important satirists and authors in the German-speaking world, whom he regards as his stage. Dorfer was awarded the German Cabaret Prize, the Bavarian Cabaret Prize and the Swiss Cornichon.
