HEINRICH VON KLEIST’S SHORT STORY: ” DIE VERLOBUNG IN ST. DOMINGO” PROVIDES A NARRATIVE FRAME FOR AN ORIGINAL PERFORMANCE WHICH EMBODIES KLEIST’S OWN STRUGGLE WITH THE WORLD — A STRUGGLE REFLECTED IN MANY OF HIS STORIES DEPICTING CIVILIZATION IN A STATE OF EMERGENCY, HUMANS BALANCED BETWEEN ORDER AND CHAOS, BETWEEN REASON AND MADNESS. AT TWILIGHT THE AUDIENCE MAKES ITS WAY TO THE SHOOTING RANGE OF THE GERMAN WEAPON TESTING AND RESEARCH INSTITUTE (D.E.V.A), JUST A SHORT DISTANCE FROM THE KLEINEN WANNSEE WHERE KLEIST SHOT HIMSELF.
