Haußmanns Staatssicherheitstheater (Haußmann’s State Security Theatre)
by Leander Haußmann

Drama

The Ministry for State Security (Stasi) has lost the plot. The bohemians in Prenzlauer Berg are creating art, the minister responsible for them understands none of it and smells treason. He establishes a task force called LSD, in which operatives are trained in art. Idiots are turned into artists. They infiltrate the subcultural scene and become part of the avant garde. But what happens when the operatives with arts training suddenly create exciting art? What is the art still worth when it turns out that everyone was part of the Stasi?

With Haußmann’s State Security Theatre, Leander Haußmann replants the Stasi’s allotment garden and produces a comedy about betrayal, love, the dilettantes’ big hour, the value of art and the Stasi as extended arm of petty bourgeois mediocrity. Following his productions of Plenzdorf’s Legend of Paul and Paula, Hauptmann’s Lonely People and Ibsen’s Rosmersholm, Leander Haußmann returns to the Volksbühne with this premiere.
