In the Sun on the tongue Fritsch encounters of three female figures does cause – over 3000 years and across cultural boundaries: A Ballyhoo in the Yesterday and a showdown in the now. “Before of our time” is about the Greek myth of the goddess Persephone, which, it is taken from love by Hades, the God of the underworld in just the first part. Then everything threatens on Earth to wither and fall in eternal winter numbness. Her father Zeus obtained then the compromise, after three months of the year in the underworld Persephone and is to spend nine months on Earth.
According to legend, emerged as the season of winter. In the second part “IN our time”, tells the real story of the Roma Courash in Auschwitz. The 3rd part brings together finally cultural boundaries “After our time” single lines from the past and the present – such as the 11 September in New York – about: any idea can be explosive in the past and the new splicing of the blown-up layers caused by the Alchemy of a utopia… the possibility of utopia in the age after the utopias. THE Sun on the tongue is a multimedia project – consisting of the staging of a space, language, scenic actions, documentary material, video and live-music – which Werner Fritsch, the international visiting Cologne musician Norbert Rodenkirchen (old music/live electronics with old instruments), the Croatian video artist Valeriy Lisac (including Musikfabrik NRW, fura del construction) as well as the Cologne theatre director Jorg Furst with his ensemble A.TONAL.THEATER in a community project bringing together. It is a new connection of elements of new German poetry, documentary theatre, the attempt to produce electronic music, ancient music and video.
