From January to July 2016, a special theater project with the title *_KLEIST.THE EARTHQUAKE IN CHILI_* took place at the Frankfurt *THEATER WILLY PRAML*. More than two thousand spectators have seen one of the most spectacular disaster-texts of German literature performed in a trilingual version (Arabic, Farsi, German). The performers came from Aleppo, from Damascus, from the Syrian Kurdish areas but also from Iran and Afghanistan. For those who have not managed to experience one of the eleven sold out performances live, there is now the opportunity to experience the brilliant production in a 30-minute recapitulation. With his documentation, director *OTMAR HITZELBERGER* presents a fascinating glimpse of the unique project’s development process.
