strange songs

Dark angel or seductive siren? In her revue-like piece Claire Vivianne Sobottke creates “ambiguous body images in keeping with the times: nymph, Amazon, womanizer, punk and girlie, complemented by opera diva, singer-songwriter and rapper”, according to critic Elena Phillip in her praise for strange songs. A witty Q & A session with the audience is included – But beware! It can get quite coarse. In all this, Sobottke, the outstanding actress and dancer, makes her wonderful voice heard, oscillating between intimacy and political activism, between poetry and whistleblowing, love and terror.
