While I’m wielding the promotions shoehorn, it’s time to mention one of my Berlin highlights for 2009, the PhoneyIsland Caberets in Neukölln. Every show is a carnivalesque wonderland of music, words, dance, puppetry and above all, delights and wonders. It returns for 2010 on the vernal equinox, 20 March. Here be details:
I can also heartily recommend that you visit their electric MySpace page, because there are links to videos of some of the early shows, which still give me tingles of delight to revisit.
A word of caution: the show is justifiably massively popular, so arriving an hour after the advertised starting time – as is usual practice in Berlin – is ill-advised.
I hope to see you there, to share in the shiny. Also, if you happen to be a performer – especially if you are one with somewhat “sideshow” tendencies – please get in touch via their website or via me, as they are always on the look-out for more acts.
