DAS Political
 

WHOM IT MAY CONCERN...


...designed to teach young people about the latest German history – no matter wether they perform the piece on stage or sit in the audience.

We are trying to sell the textbook and the music to schools all over Germany because we want students to find an emotionally understandable way to learn about their country and its history.

You can  find schools who  are performing "89 – the Political" on this website.


Hopefully, "89 – the Political" will make people talk about the damage and the solidarity, about the madness and the solidity of a Wall that was build in order to keep a whole people under control. The musical is supposed to provoke conversations about personal experiences within families and between friends. It's meant to make people laugh and cry. It's to remind people on and to tell them about an absurd  part of German history that split families, made people sit in jail unguilty and caused soldiers to shoot people dead merely for their desire of freedom.


So far, there isn't an English version of the text book. We are still looking for a mighty translator, who can transport the main idea as well as funny details like the cliché use of different German accents (Berlin and Saxon accent)
