THE BERLIN PROJECT is set during the era of the Weimar Republic (1919 - 1933), and explores the extraordinary music, film, culture and people of the era. In a hybrid and collage of opera-cabaret-jazz, we link the actual music of the period with allegory that speaks to our own.
Please join us for a unique take on a unique time. It was as exciting, transgressive, and memorable an era as the 20th C ever knew.
More details to come. Performance Works on Granville Island. 8pm, 16-17-18 January 2020.
