Between Fire & Ice – A Diabolical Weimar Berlin Cabaret
“An exceptional song interpreter with a grand voice.” –Berliner Morgenpost
International chanteuse Adrienne Haan performs Between Fire & Ice, a diabolical Weimar Berlin Cabaret depicting Berlin during the 1920s: A time of change, challenge, experiments and when traditions went down the drain. With the First World War lost and the Kaiser in exile, Germany began to experiment with a new form of government: the Weimar Republic was born and with it a nation longing for latitude. Come and celebrate the Golden Age, the dance on the volcano between the two World Wars, a time of creativity, art, music and culture, the women’s movement, and gay liberation. Under the musical direction of pianist Howard Breitbart, Haan re-lives this bodacious period probing the ties between feminist struggle and female glamour, taking you on an enchanting musical voyage through history.
