De Warme Winkel

San Francisco


English / 120 min

“San Francisco” is a recession-shaken comedy from De Warme Winkel (English: The Hot Shop). In their hilarious goings-on, the protagonists cover all the various ways of approaching “the crisis” – all the clichés, moralism, cynicism, naiveté, and resignation. This production marks the first appearance by the Dutch troupe in Berlin. De Warme Winkel is in love with history and fascinated by the chaos and disorder in which we live. Their productions are happenings, in which they play with styles and forms and also with the audience’s expectations. In a playful, witty, and often intense struggle, they seek out the beauty and truth in their subject matter.

Within the scope of House on Fire supported by the Cultural Programme of the European Union. Performance funding from the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
