I am currently writing a dramatic text in English and German, which is called 'Apology / Apologie': A conversation between a tyrant and his mother in the hereafter / Romeo and Juliet, having an argument in the hereafter / a choir, commenting on what is happening in this world. It is based on Plato's 'Apology of Socrates' and a lyrical secession of the defence speech given by Socrates, who is about to be executed. I intend to implement this text as a radio play / spoken opera and install it in a static stage room. I will also produce the music for it myself.
