Anyone who loves Lulu is killed by that love. To men, Lulu is the instrument satisfying their sexual desires, yet irritatingly, she remains autonomous and intact throughout, which makes her seem even more attractive. Attractive because her libidinous rules are in seductive contrast with the moral mainstream. Everything she does, she does with her body, and men experience ecstatic happiness, ecstatic aggression, ecstatic death. Lulu fuels this mechanism. “If people have killed themselves for my sake, that does not diminish my value.” Both battlefields – love and money – are threatened by bad speculation. On the stock market shares are traded, rising and falling just like the value of erotic attraction. The final crash drags Lulu down with it. 

Awarded with the German Theatre Price DER FAUST 2017 and named „production of the year“ by the journal Opernwelt.
