text Nimmermehr! Der sprechende, stets verneinende Rabe aus Edgar Allan Poes berühmtem Gedicht ist eines der stärksten und faszinierendsten Symbole für Melancholie und Hoffnungslosigkeit.
Der amerikanische Weltliterat setzte sich in seinen Werken wie kein anderer mit den dunkelsten Ängsten und Albträumen der Menschheit auseinander. Ausgehend von Poes Gedichten und Kurzgeschichten erkundet Tarek Assam dessen einmaligen Blick auf die Welt: düster und traurig doch von einem unerklärlichen Zauber durchdrungen. Bereits zum vierten Mal wird er dabei von Bühnenbildner Fred Pommerehn und Kostümbildnerin Gabriele Kortmann unterstützt. Die eigens für diesen Abend komponierte Musik des renommierten Komponisten Moritz Eggert wird live unter der musikalischen Leitung von Michael Hofstetter vom Philharmonischen Orchester Gießen präsentiert.
