Stadt unter Einfluss – das Musical zur Wohnungsfrage


German with English surtitles / 90 min.

The housing question is the social question of our time, especially in Berlin. The musician and writer Christiane Rösinger takes this question to the stage with eight other musicians and a chorus made up of tenant activists from Kreuzberg and Neukölln. As specialists in housing issues, they sing and dance their own stories.In the end of course everything will be fine – after all, it’s a musical!
