Theater: Samuel Koch plays in Darmstadt in "The White Band"

Television, Cinema, Theater: Samuel Koch has made a name for himself as an actor in recent years. Now he can be seen on stage in Darmstadt.
The disturbing film "The White Ribbon" will be put on stage this weekend in Darmstadt as a play. The film by Michael Haneke "will be adapted for the stage for the first time worldwide", as the Staatstheater reported before the premiere on Friday (14.9.).
      On stage is also the actor Samuel Koch (30), who has been in a wheelchair since an accident on the former ZDF show "Wetten, dass ..?" Almost eight years ago.
      Responsible for the stage adaptation is the Swiss director and playwright Christoph Frick. He has worked out the staging together with the acting ensemble and the children's choir of the State Theater.
      The black-and-white film that won the Golden Palm at Cannes in 2009 is a study of the consequences of authoritarian education and the emergence of totalitarian societies. The film takes place shortly before the First World War in a remote village in northern Germany.
      Teacher, pastor and squire, and despotic fathers dominate the community. Then strange accidents happen in the village that seem like ritual punishments. Who is behind it?
