music theatre

Based on compositions and scripts from jewish authors and musicians, director Jörg M. Welke creates a scenic revue drama. His collage of chansons, texts and movement is a highpitched revue and dramatic parody of Nazi Power.

Actress and singer Tirzah Haase plays the role of a jewish cabaret-star. In dejà-vu her past situations of life move from one short scene to another. Her path from fame to a sudden end by the Holocaust is accompanied by the dancer Sybilla Bund - ruling the game like a conductor. A choreographed memory - showing stories about existence, betrayal and casualty.

"My isle of heart" revives the spirit of that art, which was to be eliminated by antisemitism in the NS-aera.

Press comments:
