On Friday, we watched a very interesting play called ‘Zwillinge’ in the Seward Studio, performed entirely in German. The play follows the story of Annika, a girl rehearsing a scene she has written for her drama exam. Her friend Lukas agrees to rehearse with her, but he soon gets annoyed with her and is much more interested in texting his girlfriend. His twin brother, Dominik, is quite keen to help Annika though...
There were many factors that contributed to this enjoyable experience: Firstly, the play –although it featured four characters- was performed entirely by 2 skilled actors. This led to some interesting costume changes and use of props. The actors, Lydia from Berlin and Julian from Leipzig, involved the audience throughout and took the time to answer questions at the end. Moreover, the German was clear and easy to follow and understand. Although there was some complex vocabulary, we could follow the plot and have a fun yet educational experience.
All in all the performance was cheesy yet funny, but still managed to teach us useful language skills.
