About: Das Ding

When the African Siwa is talked into using sustainable methods of cotton cultivation by a Swiss aid worker, it helps two young Chinese businesspeople to make a success of their first start-up. But when their trade in soya beans begins to falter, this has an impact on Romanian pig-breeders, which in turn has direct consequences for the marriage of Europeans Katrin and Thomas. Meanwhile, ‘the thing’, a cotton ball, journeys over oceans and through cities amazed by the wheelings and dealings of humanity.

In a world where everything is connected with everything else, characters are driven by their yearning for the inexplicable, the magic moment, the great love, in Philipp Löhle’s moving and humorous observation on our globalised world

Das Ding is translated by Birgit Schreyer Duarte, sponsored by the Goethe Institute. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. This production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund.

Reviews

“In a highly comical, breakneck fashion, Philipp Löhle illuminates the mechanisms of our globalised, technologised, rapidly changing world.”
