A regis­tra­tion of the German-language music theatre produc­tion SENTI­MENTI by ZT Hollandia and RuhrTri­en­nale from the Jahrhun­derthalle in Bochum. SENTI­MENTI is based on Ralf Rothmann’s novel Milch und Kohle. The perfor­mance focuses on the memo­ries that Simon (Jeroen Willems) has, sitting at his mother’s deathbed, of her forbidden love affair with an Italian immi­grant worker in the 1960s. Accom­pa­nied by musical passages from operas by Verdi, Simon, reliving this history, searches for the essence of love. In surre­al­istic images and sounds, he looks at himself and the lost world of his child­hood in the Ruhr Area.
