Till the Stones Come...

A humorous reflection on the cultural phenomenon that is rock music and one of its poster boys – the Rolling Stones. A collective of actors led by dramaturge Daniel Majling has created a text that is both funny and polemical, sentimental and sarcastic. The personal is mixed with the fictional – the actors’ confessed love for this musical legend is set against the backdrop of drama taking place just before the long-awaited concert is about to begin.

ABOUT THE EVENT

TILL THE STONES COME… A humorous reflection on the cultural phenomenon that is rock music and one of its poster boys – the Rolling Stones. A collective of actors led by dramaturge Daniel Majling has created a text that is both funny and polemical, sentimental and sarcastic. The personal is mixed with the fictional – the actors’ confessed love for this musical legend is set against the backdrop of drama taking place just before the long-awaited concert is about to begin. And even though most of the songs cannot be played on stage due to copyright issues, the rock music energy still flows from the stage. ‘The Rolling Stones are truly the most iconic band – the Beatles have broken up and no other band has been active for so long. In addition, the Stones have shown us how they deal with their members getting married, growing old and more recently, sadly, also with departed colleagues. We knew that looking at rock & roll through the Stone’s lens might give us the most comprehensive picture. Of course, the fact that we have Robert Roth in the ensemble – a lifelong die-hard fan and admirer of Mick Jagger – also played a big part,’ says Majling, the production’s dramaturge. An upcoming Rolling Stones concert brings together security guards, roadies, promoters and the fans, new and old. Each has a personal story connecting them with the rock & roll legend.
