In Kabarett der Namenlosen, Le Pustra reimagines the Weimar Republic Cabaret Culture through his own unique point of view. The show explores the sexual and artistic freedom enjoyed during the interwar years and the aim of the production is to recapture the exhilarating Zeitgeist of the 1920’s.

 

This celebrated period in Berlin still fascinates us today and is more popular than ever with tourists, bohemians, artists and historians visiting from far and wide in search of that elusive but well documented “divine decadence”.  

Le Pustra says “I want to offer our audiences a voyeuristic glimpse into the surreal world of smoky late night “Nachtlokals” of the fabled Golden Twenties where you might meet Anita Berber or Sebastian Droste. Anything is possible and everything is available.”

"Kabarett der Namenlosen" is an immersive theatrical play and contemporary interpretation of the scandalous Cabarets frequented by all walks from society. The show consists  surreal “flashbacks” during the late 1920's into 1933 when the Cabarets and Gay venues in Berlin were closed which in turn led to many artists fleeing Berlin. Various characters appear throughout the evening in short vignettes, comedy turns and poignant performances.

So...leave your inhibitions at the door and enter a forbidden world of scandal, intrigue and self indulgence. Celebrate the Grotesque and the Bizarre. Immerse yourself in a decadent mise-en-scène and the dance the night away with The Beautiful and The Damned.

Featuring selected music from Friedrich Hollaender, Kurt Weill, Rudolph Nelson, Mischa Spoliansky, Willy Rosen, Noël Coward, Bertolt Brecht and poetry by Kurt Tucholsky and Anita Berber. 

Starring: Le Pustra, Bridge Markland, Charly Voodoo, Shir-ran Yinon, Lada Redstar, Reverso, Vicky Butterfly, Mama Ulita, Julietta la Doll, Lars Schwuchow and Guest performer: Pierre-Louis Dezert.
