“Attention Leipzig! We bring a hedonistic show of weird, funny and confusing entertainment direct from Berlin.

“Our international artists do cabaret, comedy, music, burlesque and puppets that will make your pants wet (in a good way).

“From Colombia, Lebanon, Australia and the USA, these power femmes deliver a vulvacious smack to the funny bones with a special blend of razor sharp wits and juvenile jokes.”

Starring:

Liliana Velásquez – dominatrix turned kabarettist
Duckie L’Orange – queer puppeteer
Carmen Chraim – high-energy comedy
Purdy Holsom – tasteless songs
Wynton Kelly Stevenson – harmonica wizard

“Shameless is a showcase IN ENGLISH featuring a motley bunch of art anti heros in international comedy, performance art, music and puppets! Hedonistic, independent and a little bit evil, anti-heros have more fun! Join us for a rollicking evening of weird, funny and danceable talent.”

Cocktail Open Mic Vol. 9

Fri, September 6, 8-11:30 PM

Baileo Tanzpassion Leipzig
Dittrichring 17, 04109 Leipzig (upstairs from club ELSTERARTIG)

Sometimes we go to concerts, sometimes we go to the theater, and as much as we love both of those things, we kinda know what to expect. At our Cocktail Open Mic, you never know what to expect, other than talent and pure entertainment.

Do you like to sing, play instruments, read poetry, or tell stories? Have you recently discovered a new talent you’d like to share? Now is your chance to be bold! The stage is open for anyone with something to express. We just ask that you keep it respectful and free of hate speech.

With a beautiful venue offering reasonably priced cocktails and other drinks, and audience members as well as performers usually hailing from all over the world, the Cocktail Open Mic is a rare gem. The many different creative genres in several languages make this one of Leipzig’s most inclusive, fun, inspiring events.

As always, the performances will be preceded and followed by a fun evening of mingling and drinking – a perfect place to start a Friday night.

Come enjoy open mic towards the end of summer, in a classy, inspiring and friendly environment!
