AS IF... CABARET AND SONGS FROM THERESIENSTADT
MONDAY, FEB 02 2015, 07:30 PM
In remembrance of the victims of the Holocaust, the Austrian Cultural Forum in cooperation with Elysium – between two continents, the trans-Atlantic cultural exchange organization, presents "As If: Cabaret and Songs from Theresienstadt".
This musical-literary collage is a testimony to the creative energy, imagination and humanity of cabaret artist Leo Strauss. Deprived of everything, he and other inmates of Theresienstadt still found the strength to be artistically active. In Theresienstadt – this vestibule of hell – cabaret was of particular importance in helping people: cabaret absorbed the shock of deportation, cabaret let the inmates escape into a dream world.
The texts are complemented by selections from operettas, mainly by Oscar Strauss, the father of Leo Strauss.
