As part of the competition for the realisation of the fourth collaboration with the Theater Chemnitz, concept ideas for stage design and costumes for the play production “Der Frieden” by Peter Hacks were developed in the summer semester 2019. Under the direction of Prof. Frank Hänig and in close cooperation with the responsible director Branko Janack and the dramaturge Kathrin Brune, students developed several drafts and the stage and costume designs of Jan Klammer and Una Jankov were selected.
Greece has been at war for so long that no one can remember its causes. The farmer Trygaios swings himself onto a dung beetle to climb Mount Olympus and frees the goddess of peace. But not everyone is happy with that… Der Frieden is a comedy by Aristophanes. It was awarded with the second prize in the Dionysia competition in 421 BC. Peter Hacks revised the play in 1962.
