Judith Antkowiak - DIVA

Colorful chansons on voice and concert guitar alternate with entertaining sound bites and anecdotes about the life and work of dazzling personalities. The concept of the "diva" is put through its paces, honored and sometimes lovingly poked fun at. Is a diva still a diva when she sings barefoot? Are there real divas today and if so, where can they be found? What are the requirements for a career as a diva and is this also open to men? All these questions need to be explored. You can expect an evening full of heart, poetry and great musical emotions!

Tickets 15€ / 10€

Collagen Gang: Loch in der Mauer - Utopisches zum Entkommen

The danger of being imprisoned shapes the consciousness of political activism, and the reality of imprisonment shapes the records and testimonies of the socialist and communist movements of the last two centuries. We have taken the most exciting of these recordings and rearranged them and also found music. The result is scenes suspended between loneliness and sympathy, the attempt to give courage to those on the outside and overcome our own powerlessness, as well as fundamental questions about imprisonment in general and political imprisonment specifically.  It becomes clear that a frivolous communism was able to assert itself against the oppressive experiences of incarceration: “brave, undaunted and smiling - despite everything”, as Rosa Luxemburg wrote to a friend from prison.

It is no longer enough to merely shed a tear in secret and in solitude, but about mourning politically and thus together, and then laughing again until we forget each other, together too, allowing ourselves to be puzzled and carried away.

For a few years now, the Collagen Gang has been creating scenic readings from classic and marginal texts from the left and beyond, pop music and pop hits, contributions from social media, etc., which are intended to stimulate, make you think, entertain and make you laugh. The motto: “never discouraged by the most inexplicable, never convinced by any reality” (Schernikau).
