total VERRÜCKT!

have you heard that old story about the german diseuse? the one where she wanders around the camp singing her arias in order to try to escape the gas chamber? Total Verrückt! tells her story with inspiration from the work of the jewish dutch poet etty hillesum, jewish german cabaret stars max erlich, willy rosen and dora gerson. taking its name from the 1944 production performed by inmates from westerbork transit camp, Total Verrückt! translates as “completely crazy”.  in this ghostly cabaret, watch this imprisoned actress sing and dance to prove that she exists.
