LET’S TWIST AGAIN! – Rockabilly Hits & Acrobatics
Showtime: March 06, 2019 – June 30, 2019
Playing: Wednesday to Saturday 8 pm, Sunday 6 pm
It all began in the fifties…
Rockabilly and Rhythm & Blues– what started as an exciting mix between black and white music, became the unique sound of a rebellious youth all over the world, who revolted against racial segregation, discrimination of dissidents and narrow moral values of their parents.
The Wintergarten combines the hits of an era with international acrobats to create artistic choreographies. Excellent singers interpret the legends of Rock’n’Roll and forge a bridge from Chuck Berry to Amy Winehouse, from the Platters to the Straycats. Accompanied by a live band, including musicians some of whom were still on stage with the world stars.
To the rhythm of Bill Haley’s “Rock Around The Clock” and Chubby Checker’s “The Twist” roller skate artists whirl around the stage. Ray Charles and the Blues Brothers let their hula hoops fly to the tune of “Shake Your Tail Feather”. The audience experiences daring Rola-Rola balance, graceful dancing handstand acrobatics and hot “Fever” on the trapeze. Fats Domino‘s “I’m Walkin” combines a highly focussed athletics performance on the gyro wheel with a good pinch of humour – a rather rare prop in variety. Nina Simone‘s “I Put A Spell On You” becomes a choreography in the airs on the flying pole and “Johnny B. Goode” juggles with a twinkle in his eyes with basketballs – up down front back.
Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley rapidly popularised the new, exciting music and the attitude towards life that went along with it. The rebel image penetrated the world of advertising and movies, and with the Twist, postmodernism began on the dance floors.
Let‘s TWIST AGAIN will be a variety show beyond musical and style categories.
