What good is sitting alone in your room!?! Join European homme fatale Sven Ratzke for Punk Kabarett International, a dazzling program showcasing the creme de la creme of the international cabaret scene. A bona fide star in Holland and Germany (where he hosts a talk show on German national television), Ratzke is well-known to New York audiences from his regular appearances at Joe’s Pub, Lincoln Center Atrium and Cafe Zabarsky at Neue Galerie. Ratzke’s Bowie-inspired Starman was one of the top-selling shows at Edinburgh Fringe in 2016 and toured extensively throughout Europe and Australia. The evening’s guest stars include legendary composer, conductor, singer/songwriter, playwright and visual artist Phoebe Legere; Billboard chart-topping club icon Kevin Aviance; acclaimed British chanteuse Barb Jungr and Tony-nominated musical director John McDaniel; trained opera singer, writer, actor and performance artist Joseph Keckler; and the Siren from Coney Island Carol Lipnik, whose beautifully crafted art songs and pitch-perfect 4-octave range have made her a star of the downtown NYC performance scene. Additional performers TBA.
Presented in association with Earl Dax (Weimar New York), Punk Kabarett International is a showcase event for artists represented by DAX MGMT. More information at www.daxmgmt.com.
