Puntila / Matti

Doppelgangster, After Brecht
INFORMATION

It is easier to rob by setting up a bank than by holding up a clerk.
– Bertolt Brecht

Mr Jack Puntila is a logger. He owns polar bear rugs, rugby league teams, media empires, ex-wives, cigars, and an oil spill that spells out the words ‘foul, destructive, and fading patriarchy’. Matti Flint is Puntila’s right hand manservant – or he’s an uber driver that hasn’t closed the ride yet – ever attentive to Puntila’s disgusting, sinful, and/or phantasmagoric barbarism… Oh and Matti falls in love with Puntila’s daughter Eva ‘The Sawdust Princess’ Puntila and she with him, but don’t lose sight of the $$$$$$$.

 It’s the year before all of Brecht’s works come out of copyright, and before they do, Welsh+Australian performance company Doppelgangster reboot one of his broadest and ugliest folk-comedies; without permission from any one at all. Which makes perfect sense when you know that Brecht stole the play off a collaborator from Finland all those years ago. $$$!
Puntila/Matti is a troubling, terrifying, and entertaining performance work responding to class, conflict, and changing technologies.
