based on motifs from the Edgar Wallace film adaptations
From 1959 to 1972, film versions of the crime novels by Edgar Wallace were box office hits in the Federal Republic of Germany.
The films, however, repeated norms and patterns that came from the era of National Socialism. At Burg Hülshoff, which could easily be the setting of a Wallace movie, this immersive performance, itself somewhere between text, video image,
concert, drinking game and wild chase, gives us the opportunity to do reflect on this very special German film tradition. Can we, today, in an era threatened by neo-fascism, learn something about ourselves by recapitulating these films?
