"Auf der Straße" looks at the issue of homelessness in Berlin. What happens to a person who loses their home and thus their shelter? To what extent does the loss of housing signify a loss of subsistence? Why are people who need assistance left to their own devices – in one of Europe’s wealthiest countries? What drives a society to give up its solidarity? And what does this development have to do with all of us as individuals? Together with actors from Berliner Ensemble, people affected by homelessness and a lack of shelter will develop a variety of perspectives on this topic – highlighting a societal debate which, at its core, revolves around social cohesion and a society united in solidarity.
