It is enough / Ich habe genug is a theatre project that aims to contribute to the discussion of equality and tolerance. In the production, the Bach’s cantata in connection with Hermann Hesse’s lyrics becomes an insight into the experience of a homosexually oriented person. Is Bach’s work an apparent aesthetic splendor that remains only a form to cover up doubts, fears or mistrust? Is this timeless music just an empty prayer that represents only the composer’s mastery? Can the viewer experience a new quality of contemplation and, by listening deeply in the presence of a real, affected person, open himself to an understanding of human difference and the desire for a better being?
