The Magic Mountain

Radical theatremakers Stef Aerts and Marie Vinck transform Thomas Mann's magnum opus into an epic work that speaks to us today.

Written in a time of immense uncertainty, impending global catastrophe and intergenerational fracture, The Magic Mountain is widely considered to be one of the most influential works of twentieth-century German literature.

Thomas Mann’s magnum opus is adapted by radical theatre makers Stef Aerts and Marie Vinck (FC Bergman), praised for their highly visual and poetic performances. Together with the ITA ensemble they transform Mann’s text into an epic work that speaks to us today.


Performed in Dutch with English supertitles.
