NAVEL Los Angeles, March 2019

In the Last Resort is a play development conceived by Gregor Schuster and Lila-Zoé Krauß and presented at NAVEL in Los Angeles in March 2019. Inspired by the life story of German-Jewish expressionist Ernst Toller (a revolutionary social democrat and playwright driven into exile by the Nazis in 1933), the performance project explores possibilities of resistant action in a late capitalist social order. A somber sound composition by L Twills, video, lecture sequences and performative interventions in the space through dance and fabrics, formed an atmospheric scenery in which the audience could move freely.
