In scenic highlights, HÄUSER-FLUCHTEN production brings the life stories of Nazi victims from the past into the present of the everyday life in Berlin. The route includes various stations, at which the ensemble (consisting of three actors and a musician) brings the history of the buildings and their residents back into the light. In front of the houses, in doorways, courtyards and out of the windows, the voices of the resistance fighters, the politically persecuted, of people who sought their survival underground, the unadjusted and unwanted, can be heard loud and clear.

The audience looks for their own way to and trough the individual stations where history comes to life trough performance and music, splits up, comes together again and is accompanied by the voices and sounds on an audio track. The seemingly long forgotten events are evoked and resurface at original locations in here and now.

In the run-up to the premiere, the kick-off event will be a panel discussion on the history of Spandauer Vorstadt and its relevance today. The participants take a look at Spandauer Vorstadt from a historical, theatrical, urban development, migration, political and Jewish perspective. The spreeagenten give first insights into the staging of the HÄUSER-FLUCHTEN and their work process.
