Celebrated cabaret artist and writer of operas and novels meets hip stand-up comedian – two men from different generations who, at first glance, could hardly be more different. Here the brilliant composer of the anti-idyll, there the "Panda from Papenburg" in a hoody. But charm and innocence can be deceptive. Both like to be the enigmatic "enfant terrible": One of them for decades – from provocative lyrics such as "Come on, let’s go and poison pigeons in the park" to subtle observations of time in opera form. The other plays the "Jew game" where the audience has to guess who are Jewish celebrities and who "normal."
A cooperation with the Jewish Culture Days in Berlin and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.
