Adolfo Assor, 71, plays theatre. In his particular case, this means: He's an Actor, Director, Makeup Artist, Set Designer, Stage Hand, Ticket Seller, Cleaner. Assor has been running his Theatre in Berlin Kreuzberg for almost thirty years completely on his own. 'I'm not happy with people interfering with my work' he says. He's mostly into heavy stuff and very fond of Franz Kafka who's work he adapts for one-man theatre pieces. He doesn't recieve any funding, and he's not interested in it neither. Every now and then he takes on TV or model jobs to get by.
Assor's Theatre is hidden in a large basement in a Kreuzberg backyard. The main stage can sit an audience of up to 30, depending on the set design. But he often plays for just three or four spectators, too. He puts on five shows a week.
