Achim Freyer studied theatre with Bertolt Brecht in 50s. He approaches painting as an artistic production: movement, time, space, content. He approaches theatre as a visual language: each gesture, each way of speaking, each colour, each position in space, each light – each change is language. His job is to put these elements together. Well done!

Masked singers with heavily painted faces, puppets and colourfully costumed figures on a macabre scaffold set. A visually interesting and far more creative approach compared to a conservative and boring setting.Certainly, in line with the nature of this art: vive l’ opera, vive le surrealism!
