Bau auf! Bau ab! Theaterspektakel zum Palast der Republik

In the organizer's words:
At the site of prestigious architecture in the historic center of Berlin, a second, almost completely blurred trace leads back into recent history alongside the widely visible reconstructed façade of the Humboldt Forum: it is the short history of the Palace of the Republic, which lasted from the laying of the foundation stone in 1973 until the demolition of the building in 2008.
The approximately 30 years of the GDR prestige building's existence are the focus of a theatrical journey through time in which the history of the "Palace for the People" comes to life. The play BAU AUF! BAU AB! addresses its significance as a cultural, political and identity-forming place.
100 Berliners bring the Palast der Republik back to life at its historic location. An ensemble of citizens, contemporary witnesses and choirs in cooperation with the Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Arts and the Hanns Eisler Academy of Music resurrect the building in a sensual theatrical happening and vividly bear witness to the traces that this vanished place has left behind.
