Starring Sarah Gabriel (vocals), performing the works of Brecht + Weil
Now entering its 20th season The Uncertain Hour, Club Inégales turns its ever-adventurous gaze to the troubled times in which we live and work. Over five concerts, we’ll be exploring stories of of change – historic and personal – to find beauty in equally liminal times, after which nothing can be the same.
Our season opens with the brilliantly talented singer and actor Sarah Gabriel. With the help of our resident ensemble Notes Inégales, Sarah will be transporting us back to early 1930s Berlin, via the subversive works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill. It was a period in time where artists in underground nightclubs satirised and dissected the political maelstrom in the streets above and stage collaborators Brecht and Weill captured the febrile, furious, subversive, decadent, fearful state of Weimar Germany – and the human condition. Seamlessly transforming theatre and song in Europe, and then across the Atlantic to Broadway in their tumultuous lifetimes, the legacies of this poet and composer duo somehow feel more relevant than ever.
