Having already made the international rounds playing places like Melbourne, Montreal, Avignon, Venice, and São Paulo, Thomas Ostermeier's much buzzed about production of Henrik Ibsen's An Enemy of the People hits BAM as part of the 2013 Next Wave Festival. Adapted by Florian Borchmeyer, Ostermeier's version takes Ibsen's 19th Century dark satire and plants it firmly in modern times. The story revolves around Dr. Thomas Stockmann, a man who discovers the water supply in his town's health spa is contaminated and making people ill. As he tries to spread the word, he's road-blocked and ridiculed. For his radical Ibsen reinvention, Ostermeier, who has been instrumental in raising the profile of Berlin's Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz since joining in 1999, employees innovative and energetic staging, dotted by music from David Bowie and Gnarls Barkley.
