„RosenKabarett” is the most recent production of the intergenerational team “Varsta4”. The show starts from the performers’ most significant memories – from the personal, community-based and political experiences that made an impact on them. A grandmother that you never met; a father arrested more than 50 times; a sermon by your grandfather at the synagogue; the last letter sent by your grandmother from the ghetto; the day you won a car; the day you jumped from the balcony; the day you ended up crippled; the disease that does not allow you to go nor to school, not to work; a life-long love; a life without love. „RosenKabarett” investigates the way elders related to the past, to family and identity, to love and to sickness, to memory and to forgetting. Everything in a cabaret-collage of memories, documents, songs and dance.

In August 2009, an interdisciplinary group of artists came to visit “Moses Rosen” – the jewish community home for elders, in order to meet the people living there and to ask them to view a theater show. Ten years later, the artists and the residents form a solid collective – they participated together in artistic activities of various natures (storytelling workshops, theater, dance, film, photography, collage, drawing etc.) and laid the groundwork for the “Varsta4” community art program and produced nine theater and dance shows.
