IIPM & BAVARIAN STATE THEATRE // THE DARK AGES What happens to people when their beliefs and states fall to pieces? On what foundations is Europe built? From 1945 to 1995, from the collapse of the Third Reich to the siege of Sarajevo: In the second part of his Europa trilogy, entitled “The Dark Ages”, Milo Rau focusses on the dark history of a Europe in the process of unifying. Actors from Bosnia, Germany, Russia and Serbia tell their stories of displacement and homelessness, of departure and arrival, of dedication and despair. As in Rau’s previous acclaimed production, “The Civil Wars”, and accompanied by music composed for “The Dark Ages” by Slovenian cult band Laibach, its biographical close-ups paint an intimate tableau of a continent which has been broken repeatedly – a political psychoanalysis of our time.
