The Heiber family lives in a world that’s rapidly crumbling, plagued by flawed and outdated social and political models. Meanwhile a group of aristocrats, led by Helmut Ronen, are creating the perfect city as the answer to all of society’s problems: RONENSBOURGH.
Ronensbourgh, also known as “How is it possible that we have ended up in Ronensbourgh?” is a very contemporary and highly experimental piece, written in a Heiner Müller’s style (no stage directions. No formatting. SOME CAPITAL LETTERS THAT SEEM RANDOM BUT THEY’RE NOT). The play posses relevant questions about identity, society and home; about the conception of those ideas, and the dislodging of the very things our society hold as important.
