English advanced courses visiting a theatrical production in Paderborn

05.12.2014

Accompanied by their teachers Mrs Suckel and Mr Middel, the English advanced courses of classes 12 and 13 went to the theatre in Paderborn to see “The life and death of Martin Luther King”. The play about the American dreams and nightmares was performed by the TNT Theatre & ADG Europe at the Paderhalle.

Seconds after Martin Luther King reaches the balcony of a Memphis motel to take fresh air, a shot rings out. He falls and dies in the arms of his friends. The greatest political visionary of the twentieth century lies dead.

The play about the American dreams and nightmares was performed by the TNT Theatre & ADG Europe at the Paderhalle. It tells the story of Martin Luther King’s fight for the rights of black people, his leadership of the Civil Rights movement and his ultimate death in a Memphis motel.

The play explores how this came out, following the spiritual and political journey of this once humble preacher to the status of icon and martyr. Martin Luther King was the most important man to defend the rights of black people in America. The words “I have a dream” shook Washington and the world and still resound today. Martin Luther King had a dream and much of that dream of racial equality has been realized, but his wider dream of peace and an end to poverty has not been achieved or even approached. King lived to make the American dream real but died in the American nightmare. The staging at the Paderhalle was really successful: The use of black and white masks was a clever idea to emphasize the differences between the blacks and whites. All in all, it was a performance well worth seeing.
