David Kaiser "Desire is an Asshole"
Chansons and Stories
"Follow your longing, or your longing will haunt you." This evening traces longing and casts the addiction to longing in sound and tone. Longing. A small word, a big emotion. Sometimes an indefinable feeling, sometimes a bittersweet longing. For each person, longing is something different, and yet we know immediately what is meant by it. David Kaiser takes you to wicked harbor bars and basement pubs, where anything can happen in an evening of drinks and cigarettes. Accompanied by Matthias Binner on the piano, everyday banalities lie next to life's wisdoms in the chansons and songs, sometimes you look for a little longing, sometimes it finds you. Just as one longs for the love of one's life or a friend for one night, sometimes one searches, sometimes one finds. Coupled with little stories and the songs of Kurt Weill, Friedrich Hollaender, Werner Richard Heymann and others, you experience a whole life in just a few hours in one night. In the dives, truth is reflected in the dark wine that reminds you what you might have missed, what you long for. Stories of love and madness, of adventurers, buccaneers, drunkards, lovers and whores - a smorgasbord of charming, lost souls. David Kaiser sings of being in love, of not being loved, of abandonment, of world-weariness and happiness - and of the longing that holds it all together. An evening between melancholy and cheerfulness, between desire and hope, longing and searching. An evening of, with and about longing.
