A multimedial evening about Jewish-German refugee experience, lost entertainment history and the dazzling (re)discovery of Heimat: Im Weißen Rössl (1930) was one of the last legendary revue theatre plays of the Weimar Republic. Later banned by the Nazis, it lived on in numerous productions by refugee Europeans in New York. Müller/Rinnert merge the music of the original revue with a New York adaptation by Jimmy Berg: between neon advertising and rolling luggage trolleys, contemporary witnesses and musical interludes, performers and audience are caught in a dizzying vortex.
