In 1930 the Germans still had a cutting edge film industry. Already in 1930 it was one of the first to create musical films in Europe. It sure was the first to make a film that took place mainly at a gas station. post theater reconstructed the gas station from a famous movie and made it into an exclusive mobile theater space. In there the audience experiences a multi-media performance that reflects on the film’s original themes from a contemporary perspective: can there be friendship in a world run by greed for fossile fuel?

post theater again merges facts and fiction, media and live performance for their interdisciplinary theatrical work.
