The right life in the wrong country, wrong actions on the right stage: Four young people from Stuttgart-Hallschlag show where they come from, what they can do and what’s up, work on themselves and work themselves up, search for fake noises, shoot fake films and create false identities. Composed by Hannes Galette Seidl and shot by video artist and Solitude fellow Daniel Kötter, found on the streets around Hattingerplatz, invented in music and video workshops at the Hallschlag Youth Center and shown in Theaterhaus Stuttgart.
