chekh-OFF players Berlin The Tempest - der Sturm

starts with a sailing boat fighting against an incredible storm. On board there are a group of Italian noblemen: Alonso, the King of Naples, his brother, Sebastian and his son, Ferdinand.
The crew tries for dear life to save the ship. Despite the wishes of the royalty, the ship sinks and they all must abandon it. The scene has not gone observed.
Near by there is an island, which cannot be found on any map, where some humans are living: Prospero, the rightful duke of Milan and his daughter, Miranda. It becomes apparent that the storm is not a real storm, but has been created by Prospero's magical powers with the aid of his sylph, Ariel. They both have evoked this illusion.
Because of the tempest lovers find each other, drunken fellows fool about and a net of intrigue is spun around the Island.

The Tempest of Shakespeare creates outer and inner images of the manner and behavior of human beings at the outbreak of a crises: stability and fragility of authority and hierarchy, rebellion and order and the human dependency on the forces of nature and invisible powers.
