Featuring an international cast of singers, musicians, producers, artists and performers of the highest quality and a fully staged theatrical experience all for the price of entry to a club. Including singers from the Staatsoper, Director from the Royal Opera House in London and a producer who is one half of Bad Bruises, the creators of The House of Red Doors, one of the most notorious parties in the city.
In contemporary Berlin, a city of constant flux, the timeless themes of coming to terms with one’s true self whilst facing the inevitability of change and the ravages of time seem more relevant than ever.
We follow the journey of Bellezza (Beauty) down the rabbit hole on an adventure of discovery through surreal worlds, in which she encounters curious characters manifesting as allegorical concepts.
Pleasure, Time and Disenchantment all attempt to charm and corrupt Beauty on her journey…
‘Time is cruel only to those who believe in him…’
An afterparty with music and drinks will occur after the shows which we encourage you to stay for.
