The Düsseldorf Forum Freies Theater will produce the world premieres of two contemporary political theatre pieces which portray social reality in the age of globalisation. The German-American co-production Death of Nations - Your Heart Attacks You featuring the New York International WOW Company explores the connection between constructs of reality and cultural identity in a global context. The piece Vom richtigen Leben, directed by Lukas Matthaei, portrays the lives of individuals, i.e., people in Düsseldorf, and shows how international events have shaped their lives.
