Example text

Moreover, the dancers are shown coming from the street, where they are disguised as representatives of an “appropriate” bourgeois institution, a girls’ boarding-school; upon entering Bellmann’s home, they take off their costume and exhibit who they really are, their stage persona, that is: dancers in an erotically oriented show. In this scene the private sphere becomes the realm in which authenticity and performance indissolubly blend. Excluding the references to the Old Testament in the club’s murals, Heaven on Earth does not provide a clear linkage to the Jewish identity of the protagonists.

Bellmann starts, therefore, as a spokesman for social segregation based on inborn, fixed identities. Heralding the social institutions and practices of the bourgeoisie, he is a stereotypical representative of the conservative flank of the urban middle class. When he is compelled to become the director of the club, however, he realizes that harmonious urban life would not entail the abolishment of “the club,” but rather an efficient separation between the two coexisting spheres, the private and the public.
