The Return of Karl May
(Entertaining play for the German people)

Qendra Multimedia & National Theatre of Kosovo, Pristina/Kosovo | Staged Reading

Kara Ben Nemsi, the famous character in the works of Karl May, flees the East  and heads toward German lands with a group of actors from Kosovo. On this almost epic journey, he encounters Slavoj Zizek, Peter Handke, a member of the National Socialist Underground, and a host of other characters.
