With the excitement of the Berlinale behind us there are still plenty of things to look forward to both here at The Circus and elsewhere in Berlin. Our entertainment guru Andrew Rowley once again has the run-down on what’s taking place this week…
Wednesday’s APERITIF – with Music, Finger food and of course Drinks is on again. Am happy to welcome back DJ Frau Brex who will no doubt charm us with her eclectic mix of atmospheric tunes. For more info on Frau Brex see http://www.myspace.com/fraubrexdj
Friday night we have long time Circus friends and super cool cats “Berlin Sling” (SEE PHOTO) performing in duo some vocal jazz and pop covers.

Sunday we see the return of the one and only, Massimo Giovanardi who is paying us a short visit from Italy and has packed some Bossa Nova in his suitcase. More info: http://www.myspace.com/massimogiovanardi
Tuesday at C-Halle American tough guy of hip hop 50 cent will be in town and at his crutch grabbing best to launch his European “before I self destruct” tour. While on Thursday music of a different kind will be held at Berghain’s electroakustisher Salon with Swiss composer, improviser and experimental musician Antoine Chessex performing ” DUST” a composition of three violins, Tape, Electronics and quadraphonic sound.

If it’s theatre you’re looking for, then Berlin’s English Theatre (http://www.etberlin.de) is presenting 3 pieces from Bennett’s “brilliant and masterful” TALKING HEADS, ” a series of hilarious monologues peeling back the veneer of respectability to revel in – and of course laugh at – the private foibles of everyday life.”
Lastly, for the modern art and history buffs, the German historical museum is holding the exhibition “Displaying power – Art as a strategy of rule” looking at the relationship between power, representation through art and Germany’s quest for new alternative symbols due to the corrupted symbols associated with its Nazi past.
