Making Theatre in Exile | The Institute of Modern Languages Research

Delving into a suitcase full of sketches, songs and letters, the theatre group [Foreign Affairs] brings to life the story of the Laterndl theatre in Hampstead, established by a group of exile actors and writers from Nazi-occupied Austria during the Second World War. Rekindling the Viennese tradition of political cabaret, they reflect on their new surroundings and hopes for the future, and bring a beacon of light to the 30,000-strong traumatised refugee community. The Laterndl received wide critical acclaim and soon came to symbolise the community's resistance to Nazi terror and assertion of an independent Austrian identity and culture.

‘Making Theatre in Exile’ re-discovers the Laterndl through the work of the Research Centre for German & Austrian Exile Studies on the Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller Archive, deposited in 2001 at the Institute of Modern Languages Research (University of London).

Performed in the original German and English, this project has been made possible by sponsorship from the Miller Trust, the Being Human Festival, the Austrian Cultural Forum London, and the Open World Research Initiative (OWRI).
