The Swan Song - an Operetta in 4 Acts, has been in continuous production by a stubborn group of artists and a crowd of lovely performers, shown scene-by-scene and year-by-year in venues throughout Berlin. The Swan Song is the story of two families; the Bar and the Gallery, and their struggle to survive economic changes, which test their commitment to community and common survival. Collaboration and independent ambitions clash! The Gallery must decide the course of its future and somehow bring the young lovers, Hannah and Hilaria together, while avoiding a hostile takeover by the city’s ambition for revitalizing the neighborhood. The score follows the classical operetta structure while integrating pop music, sound installation and improvised music.

The Sacred Travellers (D) are a Berlin-based big band that combines many different traditions while claiming none. The melodies are often taken from northern Thai Molam music, but the instrumentation and the rhythm section falls more into Ethiopian Jazz or Cumbia feels. The repertoire has both fast-paced dance numbers as well as slow dirge-like circular melodies that some how slip between the cracks of ethno-fetishism and high-brow experimentalism. Featuring many special guests, lots of new material and the Sacred Queens singing Ghanaian Highlife classics.
