About this production

Originally produced at the National Theatre, London, in 2006, (remounted for a world tour in 2008), this project was the first collaboration between director Katie Mitchell and Director of Photography / video designer Leo Warner. Based on the novel "Waves" by Virginia Woolf, and devised by the company, the production was hailed as a "high water mark for multimedia" by the Guardian's Lyn Gardner, and kicked off a long-term working relationship between the director and 59's Leo Warner.

Returning to the Schauspiel Koln, following the success of the much-acclaimed production of Wunschkonzert (Request Programme) in 2008, the team are recreating the original production with a whole new German-speaking cast.
