In "Kaffee mit Zucker?" the two materials coffee and sugar in their most different aggregate states determine the stage. Based on them, the history of German immigration to Central America and its colonial continuities are discussed. Coffee beans and candy floss, biographical material and historical sources, video fragments and live music are used to create a sensuous production with powerful images and intense content.
