Axel Holst und U.T.A. - Songs und Gedichte

In the organizer's words:

Poems are boring and were only invented to torture pupils in German lessons? No! Poems are emotion and entertainment, rhythm and feeling, worldview and pure rocknroll, tenderness, humor and weapon.

Before there were streaming services, there was the poem. From the sound poems of the Dadaists to the clever poetry of Ingeborg Bachmann, from the laconicism of Charles Bukowski to the wild rage of beat poet R. Brinkmann, from Brecht's wonderful early poetry to Ernst Jandl's oral poems, from Ringelnatz to Gryphius: let yourself be taken into the world of poetry, from rap to ode, from sonnet to ballad. The actor Axel Holst invites you on an inimitable journey into the world of our language and the singer/sonwriter U.T.A. fills the Lyrikmobil with power fuel, made from the finest music between soul, blues, Americana and indie. Buy a ticket and take a seat. But buckle up!

The stage and TV actor Axel Holst (known for his work on TV, including Lindenstrasse, many German theaters) interprets well-known and unknown poems in his unmistakable humorous and dramatic way and the exceptional singer U.T.A. contributes her songs, carried by her extraordinary voice and original sounds, as well as hyper-realistic songwriting.
An evening about the musicality of language and the language of music.
An emotional journey from the small to the very large and back again into the space of HORNS ERBEN.
