In scenic highlights, HÄUSER-FLUCHTEN production brings the life stories of Nazi victims from the past into the present of the everyday life in Berlin. The route includes various stations, at which the ensemble (consisting of three actors and a musician) brings the history of the buildings and their residents back into the light. In front of the houses, in doorways, courtyards and out of the windows, the voices of the resistance fighters, the politically persecuted, of people who sought their survival underground, the unadjusted and unwanted, can be heard loud and clear.
The audience looks for their own way to and trough the individual stations where history comes to life trough performance and music, splits up, comes together again and is accompanied by the voices and sounds on an audio track. The seemingly long forgotten events are evoked and resurface at original locations in here and now.
HÄUSER-FLUCHTEN is a production of the spreeagenten in cooperation with the Berlin State Center for Political Education, the New Synagogue Berlin Foundation - Centrum Judaicum, TATWERK I Performative Research and the Association for the Promotion of Art and Culture at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz e.V.

The spreeagenten, founded in 2007, are a group of artists based in Berlin who realize theater projects and performances in Germany and also abroad (e.g. Romania, Czech Republic, Serbia). They seek international, intercultural and interdisciplinary dialogue. The spreeagenten often develop productions for non-theater locations or site-specific projects. One focus is on research-based productions and forms of documentary theater. Many productions are developed as plays or commissioned from authors. International ensembles and cooperation with international artists and partners are part of many productions. However, amateur ensembles are also formed, or professional and non-professional actors are brought together on stage.
