Theatre artist Peter Rinderknecht presents “Minor Matters”*

Theatre artist Peter Rinderknecht will be in India and Sri Lanka with “Minor Matters”, a story of departure, desires, hopes and disappointments. He will also be presenting a workshop on authenticity on stage.

Together with the audience, the narrator lets a farm emerge. Here once lived a farmer. He ordered the fields, fed the animals. He was satisfied. But then he thought there was something missing, so calm and orderly ran his life from morning to night. So he goes to his town on a Saturday evening. Here he meets the woman of his heart. When he founds a family with her, happiness seems perfect. But just as the idyll originates from nothingness, it finally breaks down again.

Author, actor and director Peter Rinderknecht has written, produced and acted in theatre for over 35 years. His works are principally for a young audience. Along with fellow theatre artists and musicians, he develops and performs his projects as “theatre for a growing public” in various languages both in Switzerland and at festivals worldwide. He has to date created more than 30 productions. 

Workshop– March 12 & 13,
Si Bambai, Kala Ghoda, Mumbai

*The remainder of Peter Rinderknecht’s tour is postponed.
