Gert Voss plays OTHELLO in a stage production by playwriter and director George Tabori. The concept of foreignness probably fascinated him in Shakespeare’s play. „On the simple stage designed by Karl-Ernst Herrmann, Tabori shows the company of men: militaristic, boasting and drinking. Full of dangerous infantilism, only cool in appearance. The Moor has adapted to that society and with his very personal sovereignty fuelled by suffering, he has gained a respected position. But he is not one of them. He lives on the edge of chaos. His downfall takes place in unleashing forces of nature, which Gert Voss conjures up with seemingly magical powers.” (Die Welt)
