The finest German poetry meets electro beats: Philipp Hochmair and his band "Die Elektrohand Gottes" transform Schiller's famous ballads into an excessive rock concert. The over two-hundred-year-old verses are an absolute elixir of life for the star actor; for him, they have nothing to do with compulsory schooling and the educated bourgeoisie, but with techno, industrial and ecstasy. With confrontation! Philipp Hochmair reaches into Schiller's great linguistic works, searches for the throbbing heartbeat of the words, conducts an almost unbelievable self-experiment with these literary treasures. "The ballads are fuel that we want to burn off with the machinery of our devices," says Hochmair. Burn it off! This is not a tired stroll through 18th century poetry. This is Schiller today, here, now. Under the rhythmic electro-rock sounds of the artist band and the actor's extreme stage performance, the explosive energy of these classic ballads is revealed. You've never heard Schiller like this before!
