“Steve Jobs and Robert Bosch meet in Heaven…” That’s not the beginning of some engineer’s joke but the premise for a reflection on two visionaries, entrepreneurs and human beings. What’s really been the motivating forces behind these legendary characters?
Certainly a lot has been said about Steve Jobs. And maybe a lotshould be said about Robert
Bosch, a German inventor and founder who is famous for his modesty. Post Theater tries a resurrection of Bosch’s and Job’s technical, political and social visions.
Post Theater is interested in the triangle between technology, a global society and creativity. The two visionaries had very opposite ideas how to motivate their staff, how to generate innovation.
The production won the Stuttgart Theater Award 2015
Premiere: Theater Rampe, Stuttgart, 2014
“Steve jobs and Robert Bosch – a dance in the clouds… intelligent dialogues, full of wit… the art of acting knocks out technology. What a beautiful effect!”
(Luzia Tirado in Neues Deutschland, Sept. 5th, 2014)
“Sharp, biting humour, entertaining and nourishing…. With “Jobs in Heaven” post theater moves the audience into heaven and a video-star-explosion.”
BJ in Stuttgarter Nachrichten, July 19th, 2014
