Stadt unter Einfluss - das Musical zur Wohnungsfrage

Christiane Rösinger

As the long-term renter of an apartment in Berlin-Kreuzberg, Christiana Rösinger has now become an expert in the matters of modernization, rent increases and the threat of displacement. For Stadt unter Einfluss – das Musical, the musician and writer brings the question of housing to the stage with eight musicians and a chorus of Kreuzberg and Neukölln rent activists. In the end, it all turns out okay, of course - after all, this is a musical! For all those who have missed this widely acclaimed event so far, it will return to the HAU1 stage in the coming season!
