The Swan Song - an Operetta in 4 Acts, has been in continuous production by a stubborn group of artists and a crowd of lovely performers, shown scene-by-scene and year-by-year in venues throughout Berlin. The Swan Song is the story of two families; the Bar and the Gallery, and their struggle to survive economic changes, which test their commitment to community and common survival. Collaboration and independent ambitions clash! The Gallery must decide the course of its future and somehow bring the young lovers, Hannah and Hilaria together, while avoiding a hostile takeover by the city’s ambition for revitalizing the neighborhood. The score follows the classical operetta structure while integrating pop music, sound installation and improvised music.
