Lipsi, Der Augenzeuge Nr. A11
DDR/US 1959

Whilst the first version of Augenzeuge (1958) develops an adventurous logic between the two banes of society, Rock’n’Roll and military service, the second version from 1959 presents a homemade creation – the Lipsi Nr. 1 – designed to put an end to odious wriggling. Yet, as later newsreels had to admit, this was a somewhat “tired” dance.
