   IKENNA - Cabaret, Travestie, Variété
 

We are under construction and will be available again soon. !!!
No shows until further notice.

Ikenna Beney Amaechi is of the best: The drag queen artist with the impressive voice perfectly creates a sweet illusion. He has performed on stages in Las Vegas and New York, Los Angeles and Paris, Cannes and Salzburg, but always avoided his hometown Berlin —sometimes the prophet has no honor in his own country! But these times are over now:

The theater where Ikenna Beney gathers the cream of drag around him is centrally located and easy to find. It has a charming ambiance. Ikenna managed to bring together some of the best artists for this show. At Ikenna Cabaret Berlin, they capture the audience twice a day, Wednesday through Sunday (shows at 8:00 pm and 10:45 pm).

Ikenna is a dream, an illusion of a woman with a tremendous voice reminiscent of Whitney Houston. Ikenna Cabaret is a fireworks of impressive singing performance, graceful movement and radiant stage presence. Ikenna’s sister queens don’t rank behind him, such as Ireen Sue from Manila, then male, then female, impersonating Diana Ross or Michael Jackson. There's also Renata Ravel, hilariously chattering away and intoning saucy songs from time to time: Laurence Gerrard who impersonates Marlene Dietrich in a matchless live performance, perfectly reviving the unusual atmosphere of the diva’s appearances between glamorous star cult and melancholy. Brazilean queen Andressa is eye candy for both men and women. Last but not least, powerful-voiced Paula Jackson hits the stage with a superlative laser show.

These are only some of the drag stars presented by Ikenna Cabaret Berlin. New versatile and unique performers from around the world are engaged, often for a short time, to entertain the Berlin audience. It’s a sparkling, audacious and funny show —refined, but not too refined, feminine, but not too feminine, showing some naked skin, but not too much— in any case, it’s a perfect illusion and pure delight.

General information

   Martin Gropius Bau
 

The impressive museum building was erected accordings to the plans by Martin Gropius and Heino Schmieden in renaissance design as a crafts Museum. Besides, it housed several other collections until it was seriously damaged by bombs in the last weeks of WWII.

Only in 1966 it was listed as a monument worthy of preservation and in 1978 reconstructions works started, carried out respectfully by the architects Winnetou Kampmann and Ute Weström. Then the building was named after Martin Gropius, a great-uncle of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius who had long since called for the museum's reconstruction.

Today Martin-Gropius-Building is one of the most famous and beautiful exhibition spaces in Germany. It offers an adequate setting for international exhibitions of any kind. Architects Hillmer & Sattler were in charge of another refurbishment that took place in 1999/2000: Air-conditioning was installed and the Northern entrance, that had faced the Wall during 29 years, was restored as the main entrance.

  Our guided walking tour "From the German Empire until today" ends in   front of Martin-Gropius-Bau.

Programme until january 2009:

  Art from the Tropics
    
12 september 2008 to 5 january 2009
Twenty years after the trailblazing show Les Magiciens de la Terre in Paris the “Art from the Tropics” exhibition in the Martin-Gropius-Bau is once again attempting to explore in troubled times the currents of energy and subtle discords between the hemispheres, to show which cultural forces are working in harmony and which in opposition to one another. The exhibition aims to create an incorruptible, crisis-resistant stock of images that permits a non-hierarchical view of the world.

    Old National Gallery
 

Following the impulse of the Frankfurt national parliament, an artist movement began to call for a museum dedicated to German art. The museum was built from 1866 to 1876 according to plans by Schinkel’s disciple Friedrich August Stüler. The equestrian statue in front of the building represents Prussian king Frederick William IV who died in 1860. The building was one of the first on the Museums' Island to be completely restored to former beauty.

The gallery spans the time from the German classical period to early modern painting, comprising romantic, impressionist and expressionist style. Besides the works of famous German painters like Menzel and Liebermann, French impressionists like Monet, Cézanne, Renoir and Manet are also represented.
The picture is completed by the sculptures section, featuring names like Schadow and Rodin.

    National Ballet Berlin
 

As a consequences of the partition of the city, Berlin possessed three opera houses and two ballet companies, a big financial burden for the endebted city.
Acclaimed by the Berlin public, in 2005 the National Ballet was founded, with the famous dancer Vladimir Malakhow (see photo, in the purple dress) taking over the direction.

Thanks to o rganisational restucturing, today the ballet offers an ample programme cooperating, at the same time, with both the National Opera and the German Opera. Tickets can be booked online.

    Theater des Westens
 

There are numerous Berlin theatres offering high quality performances in various styles. We will just cite a few that may be especially interesting to non-German-speaking visitors.

The music halls of the "Theatre of the West"enjoy a high reputation.

The pompous building, dating from 1886, is a perfect example of architecture from German imperial times.

    Bar jeder Vernunft
 

The idea of Berlin cabarets in the Roaring Twenties still lingers in many heads and some visitors hope to catch a glimpse of these legendary times.

For those who speak some German we recommend to visit one of musical entertainment shows at «Bar jeder Vernunft», in a tent-like buildings with an original interieur from early 20th century in Durch modernist style.

Still, it is not only the decoration that accounts for the charming atmosphere, but the special choice of artists, mainy German, performing here, like Georgette Dee and Geschwister Pfister, Otto Sander, Max Raabe or Berlin-adopted American Gayle Tufts.


     Programme 2008

Zazie de Paris, Helen Schneider, Pigor und Eichhorn, Cora Frost, etc..
