Goethe Pop Up Kansas City: Theater Performance of "America"

Goethe Pop Up Kansas City welcomes Thalia Theater from Hamburg, Germany, for a performance of America, a play based on the novel by Franz Kafka and directed by Bastian Kraft. America vividly depicts the figure of the ‘outcast’ at the turn of the 20th century – cast out by parents, cast out of Europe. The play tells the story of a homeless man, who unlike hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic immigrants, does not see America as a land of opportunity but rather a country of social decline – the antithesis of the likes of the Irish Kennedys or German merchant families, who built a new life for themselves there. This production is Kafka’s novel, presented as the phantasma and experience of one solitary actor.
