Wunderbaum: Songs at the End of the World

“A fragile, poetic ode…sparking chemistry between theater and music.” Knack Belgium

“Fresh and original…[Wunderbaum] is political and raw, its actors also rockers.” Los Angeles Times

West Coast premiere

Explosively inventive Dutch theater ensemble Wunderbaum merges with rock trio Touki Delphine to create a theatrical superband in this absurdly fantastical concert event inspired in part by imagery from Werner Herzog’s Antarctica documentary Encounters at the End of the World. In oversized snowsuits and a variety of more fanciful costumes, six performers present a funny and rhythmic song-cycle based on their childhood dreams and hopes. One dreams of flying, another fantasizes about living with jellyfish under the sea. Each imaginary life-choice is illustrated with humorous and touching lyrics, performed in English, and imaginative musical compositions.
