“Nothing to see here!” Katharina Thalbach, Bela B, Chilly Gonzales and Bettina Böttinger on the year of cancelled celebrations – the great (digital) lit.COLOGNE GALA


Streaming from Theater am Tanzbrunnen I German subtitles available

So many events have been scrapped due to the pandemic: wild birthday parties, spectacular wedding celebrations, beer-sodden festivals and cozy Christmas get-togethers.
But, here’s a daring theory: Perhaps the loss of some parties, in exceptional cases, is not so tragic after all? Take, for example, the horrors of the bachelorette party, delightfully described by Dolly Alderton, or the trouble an author such as Thomas Wolfe might find himself in at the Oktoberfest (think beer mug brawl). Katharina Thalbach and Bela B make up for all the lost festivities with tales of failed dinner parties (Slawomir Mroszek) and frantic Christmas preparations (David Sedaris), while Chilly Gonzales comforts us with his wonderful music. Bettina Böttinger guides us through an evening that will help us forget all the cancellations and whet our appetites for events to come! Concept: Eva Schuderer
