Florian Paul & die Kapelle der letzten Hoffnung
Dazwischen

Florian Paul and ‘die Kapelle der letzten Hoffnung’ (The Choir of Last Resort) tell their stories in strong, vivid pictures that remain in the memory for some time. Somewhere between nostalgia and inquisitiveness, between the waltz and punk rock, between pop and chanson there are songs about the fear of being lonely, about remorse, jealousy and the comfort of remembering.  This newcomer band...

Berlin Premiere

Carrington-Brown
TURNADOT

Brexit Operetta

Rebecca Carrington and Colin Brown have come up with a turbulent operetta that not only examines the hair-raising motives in the ancient Persian tale, but also takes a tongue-in-cheek look at current European politics.  Sometimes nothing happens for decades, and then an entire century passes in a week! This is the fate suffered by cellist Carrie Puddleton and the singer Lawrence Longstaff,...

Premiere

Wilhelmine
Meine Geschichte in Liedern

When Wilhelmine sings, you know right away that she’s from Berlin. It reveals itself in her direct way of speaking. In the attitude in her voice. Wilhelmine speaks about everything that goes through her head. And this “everything” doesn’t always show only the easy side of life.  Her songs reflect her freedom and being in love as much as they do her experiences with addiction and resentment....

Sven Ratzke
„Where Are We Now“

The press and the public are of one mind: hardly any other artist comes as close to David Bowie as Sven Ratzke. Bowie personally gave Ratzke his permission to avail of his entire works. The resulting STARMAN tour was a great success.  Ratzke is now venturing once again into the universe of this musical legend – different, intimate, with only Ratzke’s voice and a virtuoso on the piano...

Premiere

Anna Mateur & The Beuys
Kaoshüter

She is groove and jazz and blues, she is humour and cabaret and comedy. She has been called a miracle voice or exceptional vocals, vocal acrobat or outstanding singer, her voice has been compared to Nina Hagen, Janis Joplin or Zarah Leander – all of this is true and still it is not enough to describe this wonder of nature. She dances, sings, screams and groans, she grunts, stomps and...

Rebers singt Degenhardt

Kurt Weill - revisted

Vladimir Korneev & Band
YOUKALI - Vladimir Korneev sings Kurt Weill

It sometimes seems like it’s impossible to have Kurt Weill without Bertolt Brecht. However, the creative work of the Jewish composer who was born in Dessau, matured to become an artist in 1920s Berlin, and fled from the Nazis is much broader than The Threepenny Opera or Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny. In America, where Weill lived from 1935 until his death in 1950, he wrote musicals and...

Erik Leuthäuser is the most recent “new recruit” at the BAR JEDER VERNUNFT.

Pigor singt. Benedikt Eichhorn muss begleiten
Volumen 9

Is it chanson, comedy, cabaret, concert or a show? You could call it SalonHipHop and CabaretCool but they still don't quite capture the genre of the all-encompassing gifts and talents of the Thomas Pigor and Benedikt Eichhorn duo. They are extremely political and intellectual, hilariously funny and witty, they broach love and despair, the restrictions of human existence as well as the little...

2. Boylesque Drag Festival Berlin 2020
Late Night Extravaganza

By Sheila Wolf

A night full of inspiration, new perspectives and the “obligatory” portion of naked skin: the first Boylesque Drag Festival Berlin. Berlin has always been a melting pot and a cultural pioneer in Germany. And Boylesque, which is also lovingly referred to as (male) striptease with a storyline already delighted male and female audiences in the late 18th century. In the early 1920s, this art form...

Piano Battle – Ready for TV
Andreas Kern vs. Paul Cibis

Two pianists who could hardly be more different: Paul Cibis already had private piano lessons as a child. He wore spotless white gloves and regularly won the German music competition for youth “Jugend Musiziert”. And at the second of the two adjacent pianos: Andreas Kern, who taught himself piano in a bar. He also already played Chopin at 12, because the bar owner wanted him to. But at the same...
