Ich chan es Zündhölzli azünde

After the success of the play Bullestress (translates to: Trouble with Cops), the second play by Fatima Moumouni and Laurin Buser for the Schauspielhaus Zürich now follows: They create a pointed scenario for director Suna Gürler about a young person who no longer wants to keep quiet about the injustice of the political order. And then drops a match.

The title of the piece refers to a song by Manni Matter ("Ich chan es Zündhölzli azünde" which translates to “I Can Light a Match”). This production is not about Mani Matter. But it is all the more about anger: together with members of the ensemble and young, budding professional actors, director Suna Gürler examines when and why anger erupts, what this strong emotion can do to oneself and one's environment. And where the boundary between constructive and destructive anger lies.
