Tim Fischer

On the 100th birthday of Georg Kreisler | Musical direction: Oliver Potratz

For the 100th birthday of the king of black humour, Tim Fischer finally lets Georg Kreisler's cats of prey out of the bag again! Under the musical direction of bassist Oliver Potratz, with Sebastian Weiß on piano and Hauke Renken on vibraphone, Tim Fischer brings Kreisler's figures to life in his musical homage and, as a kind of medium, tickles the absurd comedy out of the songs with their...

Das Geld liegt auf der Fensterbank, Marie
Gleich knallt’s

When the real-life fictional couple are not having a highly entertaining conversation, they sing and dance self-composed songs, play on the light organ and perform a smartphone show. A unique form of cabaret.

Pigor singt. Benedikt Eichhorn muss begleiten
Volumen X

After nine successful and award-winning programmes plus various side projects, it would now be time for the anniversary edition - but instead of looking back, the two recognised experts of elegant spoken word are leaning pretty far out of their time window and presenting: Volume X.

Irmgard Knef, Germany’s most mature and oldest cabaret singer and old-school comedienne celebrates her 95th birthday with a new musical evening: Barrier-free.  Hildegard, who has long since taken leave of her sister Irmgard, would be proud of the tough perseverance of her little sister in spirit.

„Der Mond hatte frei“
Atrin Madani singt von Liebe

On the piano: Paul Hankinson

Atrin Madani and Paul Hankinson, two world travelers in music: one a young jazz singer from Schöneberg with Persian roots and a dreamlike voice, the other, delightfully remembered by insiders as Montmorensy, a musical genius on the piano from Australia. Both are driven by a great love of love songs.   Songs by Schubert, chansons by Aznavour, songs by Burt Bacharach - they present the last...

Songs in Beige

"The popette who made Privat Modern into her first stage programme at the Bar jeder Vernunft 30 years ago has become a high priestess of the whimsical art song. She lays down captivating variations in beige with Clara Haberkamp on the keys and Natascha Zickerick on the tuba: Heillose shock sighs in untenable times." – rbb info radio

Florian Wagner
Funk You

His virtuoso piano playing is a reminiscent of a “mixture of Billy Joel and Keith Jarrett“ (Münchner Merkur), his lyrics cause “immediate fits of laughter in the audience“ (Sächsische Zeitung) and “he sings as beautifully as Michael Bublé“ (His Mom). In “Funk You“ the pianist and singer explains how Mozart would have written "Atemlos" and whether Beethoven was really deaf.

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...

Tagesspiegel Checkpoint LIVE
In der BAR JEDER VERNUNFT mit Kümper und Koppe

Checkpoint first launched online in November 2014, and now, after eight years and more than 2,400 editions, the daily morning newsletter is just as much a part of Berlin as the Goldelse and the Telespargel (does anyone even still call them that?). Lorenz Maroldt, the editor-in-chief of the Tagesspiegel, is the creator and spiritual father of the project. Initially, he wrote the most amusing,...

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 (Jetse...

Anna Mateur & The Beuys

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...

Jack Woodhead & Band

“I rather like to be slugged, to walk away from the poem with old wounds reopened… let the poem bruise me.” Anne Sexton Jack Woodhead’s new show “Reflections” is bruising, wounding cabaret in all its rabid, raucous, ribald splendor.  Did Jack murder his mother? Perhaps he’s just a little drunk, just a little lonely, sipping a tipple while sitting in a moth-eaten armchair in a cold flat in a...

Rebecca Carrington and Colin Brown, are the British dream couple of musical comedy. To celebrate the fruits of their 15 years of working together, they are performing a perfectly formed "Best of" on stage. As always, Rebecca is beautiful, clever and very funny while Colin remains cool, smart and very vocal. Joe, the third member of the band, is old. And a cello. With his bow they span the entire...

Klaus Hoffmann

On piano: Hawo Bleich

Gentle guitar sounds, accompanied by Klaus Hoffmann's voice, expressive and enchanting; catchy melodies in radiant acoustic arrangements between chanson, jazz, latin and pop, interwoven with his poetic language. The fifteen new songs on the album tell their stories in the so typical Hoffmann way in wildly romantic images.

Irmgard Knef
Glöckchen hier, Glöckchen da

The slightly different Christmas programme

Irmgard Knef and Christmas - they go together like chilli peppers in gingerbread.  Anecdotes, poems, autobiographical, bizarre and probably the most original Christmas story since the Gospel according to Luke make this entertaining programme an enjoyable, fun and musical evening. Lyrics in German.

Sebastian Krämer
„Im Glanz der Vergeblichkeit“

Ingenious and radical - his critics put him in the same league as Morgenstern, Ringelnatz and Kreisler. In his commentaries, Krämer is capricious, in his songs sweet to coarse. His musical vocabulary ranges from swing to Viennese school.  This show is not suitable for non-German speaking visitors as German language knowledge is required.

Rebers singt Degenhardt

Andreas Rebers is one of German cabaret’s top artists – musically ironic, evilly witty, black-humoured, very intelligent – absolutely fantastic.  In his new programme, Rebers sings chansons by the German songwriter and protest singer Franz-Josef Degenhardt.
