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...

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...

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...

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.

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...

Tim Fischer & Band
Zeitlos

Tim Fischer has absolutely come into his own. He is a shrill diva and a thin-skinned chanson singer par excellence, staging a small play with every song and divulging something of himself every time.  Future classics come unashamedly next to old and very old songs. He offers us a full-bodied, high-spirited repertoire and intoxicates us with absolutely riveting chansons, including those from...
