"...I am not a citizen, not a Jew, not a Christian - I want to be human and am looking for people, regardless of their denomination and nationality..."


Erwin Schulhoff (1894–1942) was a composer and visionary. His search for ideas for the new era led him from classical to tavern music, from Dada to jazz. He was always on the move, looking to the future with anticipation. From him they were inspired to create a musical theater that makes the sound ideas of yesterday audible for today's tomorrow.


They promise dada thunderstorms in the drum frenzy! Classic wrapped in bacon! Piano notes in a saxophone dress! The singer struggles with receding tones. At the music loom the composer with grim text snippets. Invest your money in Schulhoff! The future has never been so cheap!


The project was funded by the Treptow-Köpenick District Office of Berlin, Decentralized Cultural Work, the Senate Department for Culture and Social Cohesion and the Schlossplatztheater Support Group.
