A long time ago, Güllen was a wealthy city. Now it is looking into the abyss of financial ruin. Sell-out and seizure are threatening. In this fatal situation, the residents are have nothing to hope for – except for the visit of an old lady, multi-millionaire Claire Zachanassian. Perhaps she can revive the ruined city of Güllen with an endowment?

Breaking the Spell is a pilot step of the artistic research project that reflected practices of thinking-with and being-with in performing arts and researched spells as political and artistic practice.

The podcast is the invitation to join some of the Breaking the Spell exchanges. All four episodes, conceived by Zuzanna Berendt, Marta Keil and Anna Majewska, were created in collaboration with artists, artworkers and thinkers participating in the Breaking the Spell and with representatives of the communities in some of the localities where the project took place.
Some productions of Schauspiel Leipzig are made accessible to an international audience by means of English surtitles. Performance dates featuring surtitles are marked in the monthly programme brochure.
