SEELIG is a black-white movie with a surrealistic content. It starts with a classical story and break over to a surrealistic journey, similar to a drogue trip. The central figure is “the joker”, who obsessed the other actors´s soul and is kidnapping them to an absud, crazy and wild world of dreams. The roles aren’ t gender determinated, women are also playing classical male roles. The film is made in a very simple and unperfect style, it constists of beautiful arranged single scenaries and specially composed music.
We apologize: Nicole Yazolino’s performance is unfortunately cancelled due to unexpected illness… take care of that voice and get well soon, girl! Team DL.
The richly expressive operatic voice of Nicole Yazolino has always itched for music beyond its admittedly soaring confines, and found it in original songs blending flourishes of opera into guitar ballads and jazzy novelties. Already a fixture with a growing cult following, the American diva nouvelle brings to [DLX] something new: an eclectic performance piece that is a mix of ambient elecronica, vocal improvisation, classical French and German art song, traditional songs and arias… a performance experience without parallel. Yazolino’s offbeat wit and onstage charm are reason enough to come out in droves, but the nuances of that voice always manage to take the evening. Yazolino herself dubs the piece “fucking cool.” Need we say more?
The man Glenn Close once described as “the most incredible person in the world” in fact changes gender the way others change their summer underwear. Dieter Rita Scholl, besides appearing (literally) beside “La Close” in Meeting Venus, has also graced the screen in Agnes und seine Brüder and the recent, award-winning Cold Star, among other films, and taken the stage as Dalida and a bevy of other beguiling beauties and brutes. This is Berlin’s native scene-stealer. A very special guest performing live, accompanied by Italian import pianist Martina Colli, straying from the classical repertoire of her recent album* into the world of the offbeat, tonight at Directors Lounge.
