Staged by Theater Basel, delightfully witty and (very) loosely based on My Fair Lady, Meine faire Dame - ein Sprachlabor is set in a language laboratory where its characters attempt to learn English from a very eccentric professor – with a secret to hide. Director Christoph Marthaler skilfully blends music by Weber, Wagner, Bryan Adams and Ravel into a subversive, profound and very funny examination of language and linguistic confusion. Supported by Ewan and Christine Brown. With additional support from Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
Meine faire Dame – ein Sprachlabor is part of the London 2012 Festival, a UK wide festival from 21 June – 9 September 2012 featuring leading artists from around the world.
