Goran Bregovic and his Wedding & Funeral Band played in Berlin on Sunday evening, on the 30th of October, at Konzerthaus Berlin.
As I come from Balkans as well, I wanted to experience a concert of Goran Bregovic...and it was my first concert of this style so far. Surrounded by people who started speaking with me in Serbian most of the show, I enjoyed it fully and would go again twice with eyes closed.

If you were not there and you want to get a glimpse of what happened, take a look:

"How to become a Berliner in one hour" by Karsten Kaie

"How to become a Berliner in one hour" is a stand-up comedy show by Karsten Kaie, presented every Tuesday night at Comedy Club Kookaburra.    
I was there previously once to this show and I enjoyed it and second time I promised myself that I would go with my camera to photograph it. Therefor, here it is: one of my favorite stand-up comedy shows in Berlin.

As Karsten Kaie says, after the show you'll act like a real Berliner in every situation encountered during your trip: Taxi, metro, restaurant, shop, night club…  

Just as an idea, just for you to know who you will listen for one hour. Karsten Kaie was born in Bavaria and moved to Berlin to study drama. Later on he lived in Spain and the United States. He studied acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York.
As Caveman as well as with his own solo shows he has been on stage all over Germany and beyond, even in Las Vegas. He also works as a keynote speaker at business events. His first book was published in August 2015.

The Journey / DROM is a collaborative project by Roma and non-Roma artists from Serbia, Hungary, Romania and Germany. By collecting and presenting true stories of Roma asylum seekers on the so-called Balkan Route, it explores the poetics and politics of the being “On the Move” (Ando Drom) and illuminates what makes Roma identity and culture today. Far from typical documentary theater, the artistic result takes the form of a sensationalist TV show, full of satire, black humor and a touch of chaos.

Initiated by: Per Aspera e.V. (Berlin) in collaboration with Roma Trial e.V. (Berlin), Kultura Nova (Novi Sad) and Pro Progressione (Budapest).
By and with: Hamze Bytyci, Mihaela Drăgan, Kristóf Horváth, Slaviša Marković, Branislav Mitrovic, Ognjen Petković, Brina Stinehelfer
Funded by: Change of Scene, a program of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the International Theatre Institute (ITI), and the Allianz Cultural Foundation. 
In cooperation with the Collegium Hungaricum Berlin. 
Co-produced by GORKI Theater Studio Я.

"Gadjo Dildo" Cabaret show in Berlin

Three different Roma women illuminate, as they are exoticized and eroticized by Gadjos (Gadjo = A man who is not a Roma), but are also suppressed and limited in their own communities as women. The title also plays with the Romanes word Dilo, which is best translated with crazy. The French-Romanian film Gadjo Dilo of 1997 is also confounded in the title.

TAK THEATER IM AUFBAU HAUS shows for the first time a play of this fascinating group from Bucharest, Romania, which is currently recommended as the European Roma feminist avant-garde.
