#BEkrull

Felix – the Lucky One – son of a bankrupt manufacturer of sparkling wine, is a master in the art of showing people exactly what they want to see in him. His special kind of luck is being able to be anything in a world of forgeries, a world that no longer knows any truth. So he is what he seems to be, authentic in deceit, an expert of creative self-marketing. The director and author Alexander Eisenach will write a play about the confidence trickster as the epitome of modern mankind, constantly self-producing (premiere in December). As a prelude, he will look at the supreme example from literary history: "Felix Krull" – Thomas Mann’s captivating parody of the artistry of brilliant appearances which, in the end, produce the very thing that they are not: life itself – a veritable con.
