Old black and white pictures flicker on the huge screen above the stage. Kaliningrad when it was still Königsberg. "German was always spoken and felt German here," said a spokesman in the prevailing tone. Hitler smiles from behind a window. A German girl milks a cow. Behind it, the boys practice boxing. Cut. Children crawl out of a bunker, rubble all around. Cut. A golden yellow fried egg lands in a pan. Whack! "Königsberg" takes place in Berlin. It is the first production by the St. Petersburg film and theater director Andrei Nekrasov at the Volksbühne on Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. Two and a half hours of theater, cinema, literature, music, politics, German-Russian history, philosophy, cultural and social criticism, discourse, action, sex. Whack! (Source: Neues Deutschland)
