Some weeks ago in Paris at La Gaite Lyrique.  A calm audience. Some curious, but mostly careful. Interesting how it was different from Lyon last year. More a party crowed during a music festival. Then it was late into the evening, people got more daring, or drunk. Not that I suggest, but the more courageous the audience ties me up, the more fun and somewhat sadistic moments. Which I think is interesting in this set up. People seem to really enjoy drastic ties and seeing me struggle.
In Paris people were beautiful, just shyer. Maybe the official institutional sight sets a vibe somebody said. I liked the purity. Surely, I keep fond memories of those five shows. Everyone, especially  the technical and production team was so supportive of Micha and me.

Kiezkantine *Liebe*

Indeed a lovely event with locals from the neighbourhood of the Sophiensaele.

KIEZKANTINE IX
Kiez und Kunst in der Kantine: Rund um die Sophiensæle finden sich auch abseits der Mitte-Klischees lebendige Strukturen, soziales Engagement und vielfältige persönliche Geschichten. Alle zwei Monate öffnen wir die Kantine für den Kiez und laden bei gemeinsam zubereiteter Suppe zu einem Kennenlernen der Nachbarschaft, der Künstler_innen und des Publikums der Sophiensæle ein. Jede Ausgabe wird von einem Thema gerahmt – im Dezember: Liebe!
