The successful production “Stadt unter Einfluss” (City under Influence) returns to the HAU1 stage! Wherever you listen tenants are worried: fear of modernization and rising rents, of displacement, conversion and housing shortages. In other circles as well people are talking about housing, not as a home but as capital investment. Berlin is a city under influence, under a bad influence. But Berliners have started fighting back: 40,000 people took to the streets in May 2019 for the “Mietenwahnsinn” demo. At about the same time HAU commissioned Christiane Rösinger to make a musical about the tenants movement. The musician and writer, who has been singing and writing about Berlin for 30 years with her bands Lassie Singers, Britta and also solo, brings the housing question to the stage with eight musicians and a chorus made up of Kreuzberg and Neukölln tenant activists. As specialists in the issues of displacement and tenant problems, they sing and dance their own stories. In the end of course everything will be fine – after all, it’s a musical!
