Big thumbs up for you! Having the chance to perform in Berlin was unique. I felt I was performing in front of a well-educated audience. It was inspiring to see what other artists had in mind and to witness their creative choices.

I definitely enjoyed it and found it surprising, fresh, original. In some moments it was very funny and in some others I could reflect or feel near to what the artists were expressing with a lot of intensity.

Fabulous show! I am still giggling every time I think of the ladies from “Pink” nakedly sledging over the wet stage floor and shooting with a music-playing toy gun, totally surreal…!
