TIPI AM KANZLERAMT presents:
Welcome to the Kit Kat Club right next to the Chancellor’s office! The TIPI AM KANZLERAMT becomes a cabaret, hosting the world-famous musical about life, passion and despair in Berlin under the darkening skies of approaching fascism.Based on true events and real lives, CABARET portrays the experiences of the English writer Christopher Isherwood, who lived in the Berlin district of Schöneberg from 1929 to 1933, making real life the source of this highly sensual theatrical experience.The story of the carefree nightclub-singer Sally Bowles in the glittering yet shady milieu of the Golden Twenties immortalised the city of Berlin as the city of historical fractures, caught between glamour and the gutter, between dreams and despair.This production of CABARET is the work of director and star choreographer Vincent Paterson, who has developed choreographies for Madonna and Michael Jackson as well as for Lars von Trier's Dancer in The Dark.

Ratzke, an entertainer extraordinaire whose shows are a spectacle of art and wonderfully manic music that have incited furore worldwide now takes a closer look at Bowie and, in STARMAN, creates a figure that goes far beyond a mere homage to a living legend: STARMAN comes from another planet and is a kind of 'Baron von Münchhausen from outer space'. In STARMAN Ratzke sends his audience on a crazy, incredible, entertaining journey from the stars via New York to Berlin.From seventies Glam Rock to groovy sound collages, right up to tender confessions on a rustily whining piano - Sven Ratzke is accompanied by his brilliant three-man band directed by the ingenious Charly Zastrau, who has created his own world of sound especially for this show.'Cabaret' encounters a great rock performance, entertainment meets pop. Crazy, intimate, witty, bewitching and extremely rocky – the universe according to Ratzke crashes head on into the legend that is Bowie and fuses to become a grandiose, highly explosive musical extravaganza.
