inside/out

“inside/out”, a concert by Solistensemble Kaleidoskop with Ernstalbrecht Stiebler, explores the possibilities of an inner perception of sound, a ‘listening-in’ to strange sound spaces. The concert will present music by composers who are important reference points for Stiebler, from Dieter Schnebel and Walter Zimmermann to Mozart and Puccini. Rashad Becker complements the evening by bringing Stiebler’s music into the electronic music realm.

Bajazzo Road Opera

Almost exactly 125 years after the premiere of Ruggero Leoncavallo’s opera “I Pagliacci” (Bajazzo), the verismo opera is given a post-dramatic update in the Kudamm Karree in Berlin. The Kurfürstendamm is a place where imaginary and real spaces intermesh, a place anchored in the history of the city and its theaters. Blueprints and the quiet decay of what were high-flying visions of the future mark this street. It is a street consumed by consumer culture, trampled over by swarms of tourists and inhabited by residents who take in all these changes with doubtful eyes. “Bajazzo Road Opera”, a collaboration between Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop, director Ludger Engels and musician and actor Thomas Mahmoud, finds its roots in this intermediate space.

DADADADAAAAA – A century of Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop and Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra

10 x 10 = 100. The Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop and Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra – two extraordinary, internationally-known Berlin ensembles, are both turning 10 this year. Coincidentally, DADA turns 100 at the same time. The logical result is for Kaleidoskop and Andromeda to celebrate their anniversary together, with two nights of extra-long, staged concerts in the form of a Dada Gala. The party takes place in RADIALSYSTEM V, which is also celebrating it’s 10th anniversary in 2016. Coincidence? Nothing is a coincidence.
