M (2) – A CITY SEARCHES FOR A MURDERER (WHO BENEFITS FROM WHICH FRIGHT?)




Film preview as live performed ghost stream preview of the premiere of the concert installation at the Residenztheater by Schorsch Kamerun after Fritz Lang and Thea von Harbou with soundscapes by Cathy van Eck

“The murderers are among us” was the working title of Fritz Lang’s famous 1931 film “M.” It reflects the ambivalence with which Lang and Thea von Harbou portray the hunt for the serial killer Hans Beckert. The actual leading role is played by the deeply unsettled metropolis, whose population is marked by the experiences of war and the world economic crisis. In the adaptation by the musician and theatremaker Schorsch Kamerun (The Golden Lemons) and the composer Cathy van Eck, this relationship is reversed and the film becomes a concert installation, the material a foil of the present.  In a co-production with the Munich Biennale, the BR radio play production “M (1) – Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder (Wer hat Angst vor was eigentlich?)”, which premiered in May 2020, is now followed by the second part of the audio, film and music theatre triptych as a unique live film preview on Marstallplatz. It describes the horrors and opportunities of the present with its real and perceived fears, its reflexes of restriction and solidarity, and sketches out human enchanting transformations.
