| Variety show
This project brings the destroyed artistic form, "Kleynkunst" back to the stage and updates it with contemporary twist: At the KleynKunst Theater, Vaudeville from the 1920s encounters queer performance art, and Yiddish hits from Moldova meet cabaret from Berlin.
Until 1938, Vienna was home to a rich music, cabaret and cultural scene influenced by diverse Jewish and migrant cultures. Vienna had many Jewish theaters such as the JÃ¼dische BÃ¼hne on TaborstraÃŸe, the JÃ¼dische KÃ¼nstlerspiele on PraterstraÃŸe, and the JÃ¼disches Kulturtheater on Franz-Josefs-Kai, among others. Yiddish theater companies performed here (including the renowned Vilna Troupe), and often migrant artists passed through Vienna on their way west from Eastern Europe.
In contrast, during the post-war period Vienna was venue to a great deal of cultural monotony, often situated between the conservative aesthetics of the Burgtheater and the stale charm of 'Wiener GemÃ¼tlichkeit'. Very few artists who survived the Nazi terror returned to Austria after the war. But those who did, including Georg Kreisler, Gerhard Bronner and Stella Kadmon (founder of "Der liebe Augustin" Kleinkunsttheater) had a strong and lasting influence.
The KleynKunst Theater not only brings back this long forgotten form, but also gives it a contemporary twist. What happens when vaudeville from the 1920s meets queer performance art? What does it sound like when Yiddish hits from Moldova encounter cabaret from Berlin? Artists from Vienna, Berlin, Traun, Eisenstadt and ChiÈ™inÄƒu bring a variety show to the Vindobona stage that is certain to contrast your typical post-fascist night out.
In that spirit, Guten Abend, meine Damen und Hering! You will laugh, you will cry, and you might even dance!
