Texts by Heiner Müller form the basis of this first co-production between Kris Verdonck and HAU. Marked by a life in four different political systems, the author treats the category of the enemy as a prerequisite for producing identity. We can't live with the enemy, nor can we live without him. A play at the border between fiction and reality.
