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....

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...

Piano Battle – Ready for Fame
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...

Die alten schönen Lieder

On Piano: Thomas Dörschel

Tim Fischer and his pianist Thomas Dörschel are finally back on stage together again after many years and embrace a musical role that looks back on the good old songs. From their repertoire “Na so was”, “Lieder eines armen Mädchens” (Friedrich Hollaender), “Walzerdelirium” and others, they select the most beautiful chanson pearls and create a wild mix that reminds us once again how enchanting and...

Dominique Horwitz
Dominique Horwitz singt Brel

Jacques Brel passed away at the early age of fifty. But his songs live on. “Ne me quitte pas” and “Amsterdam” and many other songs of his are music legends. The French actor and singer, Dominique Horwitz, brings Brel's hits as well as treasures that have never been performed, back to life so lovingly, vivaciously and emphatically. He slips into the skin of a great artist, yet still stays himself....

Pigor singt. Benedikt Eichhorn muss begleiten
Einführung für Anfänger

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...

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...

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...

Please note...

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...
