With Sibylle Berg’s ›How to sell a murder house – A danced real estate portfolio‹, the director Marie Bues and the choreographer Nicki Liszta imagine drastic explorations of reality: while the city sinks in the civil war, a man saves himself in the vacant house on the Hill as last resort. But even up here the madness of the big city, the crisis of the corporate and financial world and the failure of the white, western, heterosexual man can not be stopped … An abominable evil and at the same time tragic horror trip!

On a slightly hilly terrain in Stuttgart-Vaihingen is located the former head office of IBM Germany. Egon Eiermann, the star architect of the German economic miracle, designed the area as an impressive, functional and detailed architecture full of solid craftsmanship. The buildings stood in the middle of beautiful trees, island-like directly at the Autobahnkreuz Stuttgart. But after the departure of IBM in 2009 threatened the site the decay, nature and the vandal man grew into these buildings of international importance.

And today? Currently the Garden Campus Vaihingen, as the Eiermann site has officially been called by the Entrepreneur Group Gerch Group, is a city-planning project for the city of Stuttgart: a new city center is to be built here. It is reason enough to overwhelm Eiermann’s testimony of the past working world and the long-standing threat to architecture. To fictionalize. To dance!
