Around the World in 80 Days

Phileas Fogg bets 20,000 pounds that he can travel around the world in 80 days.

But what is the real wager in the race against time – is it all about the money, fame and honor? Or is it about the sense of adventure, the meaning of friendships, connecting with the peoples of the world – and maybe finding his true inner self?

The BUSC brings Jules Verne‘s classic to the stage as an ensemble dance piece in an alternate universe.

The Duchess of Malfi

The Duchess of Malfi – freshly widowed heiress of the city’s recently deceased gangster boss – has it all: A loyal best friend, a secret love affair with her accountant, and all financial means needed for a carefree and self-determined future.

But the Duchess’ newfound freedom is not welcomed by the rest of her family: Her brothers, the calm and calculating Cardinal, who handles the daily criminal business, and her unstable twin Ferdinand, the family’s black sheep, start plotting behind her back.


When the shady ex-con Bosola gets involved as well, things begin to get out of hand…

A bloody and bizarre family tragedy about power, love, honor, betrayal, and revenge.
Caution: Might contain werewolves!

Antigone

A vacant throne, a contract between brothers and the intention of doing the right thing.

The king of Thebes has died and his sons Eteocles and Polyneices fight over the succession to the throne. Both find their ruin in the pursuit of power; while Eteocles dies protecting the city, Polyneices dies trying to destroy it. The new king Creon rules that in honour of Eteocles, Polyneices is to stay unburied. Their sister Antigone is outraged about this unjust law that contradicts the laws of the gods. But…

Should we value unwritten laws of humanity more highly than the laws made by humans? Should a peson be treated differently in death because of their actions in life? And should one risk everything to do the right thing?

These questions may be even more relevant today than 2500 years ago when this play was originally written.

A modern adaptation of the tragedy by Sophocles.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern – A Ghost Story

In der diesjährigen Sommerproduktion reist die BUSC in die Unterwelt, wo Dinge zuerst gewöhnlich erscheinen, bis ein Münzspiel die Charaktere auf ihre beunruhigende Situation aufmerksam macht. Sie begeben sich dann auf die Reise, alle offenen Rechnungen der toten Seelen zu vollenden. Während sie über ihre letzten Tage auf Erden nachdenken und versuchen herauszufinden, wie sie an Freiheit gelangen könnten, stoßen sie auf die mysteriöse Geschichte eines erfolglosen Autoren mit bösen Absichten. Mit Ausschnitten aus Shakespeares „Hamlet“ hat W.S. Gilbert „Rosencrantz and Guildenstern“ in eine moderne Adaption verfasst, in welcher man noch nie zuvor gesehene Aspekte der beliebten Charaktere auf der Bühne darstellen kann.
