Our expedition takes us this to good old time of VARIETÉ theatres and cabarets – the world of the wicked, the sensual world, the boundless freedom of the exotic and erotic pleasures. Being inspired by VARIETÉ to us means the playful mood of “Unleashed Stage”: We like to dance, sing and play music – and to present a programme that adds a new color to TOR 6 Theaterhaus.
The first VARIETÉ programme of Theaterlabor is based on events that happended 110 years ago. We show the latest achievements of the world of photography and film, the beginning of modern dance, the futuristic music as well as eloquent prose and poetry effusions. We meet Mata Hari and Else Lasker-Schüler, Erich Mühsam and René Karl Wilhelm Johann Josef Maria Rilke, Asta Nielsen and Marinetti.
Inspired by VARIETÉ we offer you prose, poetry and songs and evoke the destructive spirit of expressionism. But do not worry – we just want to play …
