Soden ran a cabaret that was closed in 1961 after it was found to be counter-revolutionary. Then he was arrested for protesting against the government. He spent nine months in a GDR prison, after which the Stasi spied on him.

He also made a name for himself as a theater producer. As a director, he created a unique cultural island with multiple venues in his home in Halle. In 1986 he won the National Prize in the GDR. In 2001 he was awarded the German Federal Cross of Merit. (APA)
