CHAPLIN - A ballet by Mario Schröder. The little guy with his moustache, his bowler hat and his bamboo cane is world famous. But, who is the man behind this figure? Mario Schröder wondered the same thing when choreographing 'Chaplin'. His rise to fame makes Chaplin a person of public interest. The clown becomes political. America's conservatives are, however, suspicious of Chaplin's convictions. Suspected of communism, he is eventually expelled. The ballet describes Chaplin's life in relation to his creative work and shows that an artist who observes his enviroment both sensitively and consciously is behind the funny Tramp.
