The musical “Wir sind das Volk” (Laibach)

July 2, 2022

As part of the Fortress of Peace programme arch, the Ljubljana band Laibach will perform the musical “Wir sind das Volk” (We are the people).

The musical is inspired by the provocative postmodernist dramaturgical works of Heiner Müller. This project was premiered at the HAU theatre in Berlin, where Heiner Müller himself once worked in the famous ‘Berliner Ensemble’, a theatre founded by Bertold Brecht. Inheriting Brecht’s revolutionary inspiration, Müller thematized the problems of nationalism, but also the development of socialist society, which is why he often had to deal with the problem of censorship.

The musical-scenic performance we will be treated to as part of the “Rebellion” is, in terms of artistic expression, the merging of Müller’s stage expression with the provocative music of Laibach, while in terms of content it is about merging anti-nationalist and anti-repressive ideas into a theatrical gesture representing the fight against the dangers of nationalism, which is increasingly returning to us today as an alibi for new types of totalitarianism.

Tickets for the musical are available at all Gigs Tix ticket offices as well as on their website. The price of a ticket is RSD 1500. In case of bad weather, the event will be moved to the City Concert Hall, where the seating arrangements will remain unchanged.

Venue: House of the Army (Dom Vojske)
