Krampnitz is an abandoned military base near Potsdam, Germany. It was originally built by the Nazi’s and used as a training camp for cavalry officers. The Soviets took over the base after the second World War and used it as a military base throughout the Cold War until it was abandoned after the collapse of the USSR.
In the middle of this camp is an old theatre where this recording was made. It was a bit of a surprise to find a theatre in the middle of a military camp and you can only imagine what used to go on here, who came and what sort of performances they had.
