No longer available

Wintergarden, The Civic


Truth is tough and hard as nails, that’s why we need fairy tales.

In a time marked by explosive political change, Berlin of the 1920s and 30s was the centrepiece of European culture. People yearned for freedom, peace and truth – and the dark dreamland of the cabaret hall gave it to them. Entertainers told defiant tales of broken love, blurred gender and brazen sexuality. 

Jennifer Ward-Lealand, director Shane Bosher and musical director Robin Kelly explore the biting musical experience of Kurt Weill and his contemporaries, in this wild rejig of the Weimar songbook. From ‘Surabaya Johnny’ to ‘Mack the Knife’, these rousing anthems expose the hypocrisy of politics and the art of the possible. 

Provoke your spirit with the voice of the underground.
