Late Night

blitz theatre group, 2012
A ruined dance hall where everything is falling apart. Late at night.

Music never stops. Totally isolated from the outside world, they all dance in circles in order to stay alive. They recall their past days during a European war, a lost love, songs and wild nights. Maybe they are all ghosts trapped in time.

In those days, the roof of the hospital in Potsdam collapsed. It was a huge fire. Some were sleeping in the airports, others in malls. We were sleeping in the warehouses next to the River Spree.

23rd day. We are together without memories, without plans. It was the happiest day.
