A Report From Post-Migratory Germany
In addition to producing new works at the Gorki, Langhoff brought with her a couple of productions from Ballhaus Naunynstraße, including Crazy Blood , which still sells out every performance. Over the stage hangs a piano, tilted perilously at an angle. In the much larger Gorki, the piano does not hang partially over the audience, as it did at the Ballhaus Naunynstraße , threatening to crush viewers with its classical Germanness. But when Frau Kelich threatens her Turkish students with a pistol, her gunshots explode just as loudly.
