Since last Saturday I am totally hooked on Karaoke. Matthias Lilienthal, artistic director of the HAU theater celebrated his goodbye party with sexy rockstar grandma Peaches. She didn’t just perfome some great songs herself but also hosted an amazing karaoke night. The whole audience sang and danced and somewhere between Total Eclipse of the Heart, Rolling in the Deep, 99 Luftballons and I will Survive I got quite emotional. Not so sure if it was because of the 16 year old Turkish girl wearing a head rag performing Adele’s no. 1 hit like a champ or because of the collective experience of 800 people singing (or let’s say screaming) all together I will Survive. Definetly a night to remeber. Photos of the night after the jump.
Did you know that the World Exposition in Osaka Japan was powered by the energy of the first nuclear plant built in Japan? Or did you know that there is a manual on how to shoot video material to document the demonstration in Syria without the danger of getting killed and your family tortured? The World ist not fair says the theater genius Matthias Lilienthal who is chief of HAU and responsible for the big theatrical event at Flughafen Tempelhof. We had the chance to visit this amazing installation of several perfomances and little exhibitions and were really blown away. This is the last week you can visit it and I recommend to do so. Take your bike and enjoy nature, urbanity and art getting together. Don’t miss the perfomance of Tatjana Saphir and Santiago Blaum at the andcompany&Co stage. Also the Instiut für Imaginäre Inseln has a lot to offer for intrepid explorers. Find the whole program over here and some pictures of our day after the jump.
