Kitsch und Krempel

Under the Moon of Love
From Georg Kreisler to Roland Kaiser – this is the motto of “Kitsch und Krempel”: Brian Völkner and his ensemble will take you on a musical journey into the worlds of “Schlager” and chanson. Among popular hit songs and whimsical discoveries, everyone will find something to enjoy.

This series is performed by actors and people who are not usually in the limelight. Together, they make up the musical ensemble of “Kitsch und Krempel”.

After more than ten successful editions at the Diskothek, this cult programme now ventures outside the theatre’s walls: Following “Dschungelbuch (Jungle Book)” and “12 Monate”, this will be the third chapter in a successful cooperation story of Schauspiel Leipzig: In the summer of 2020, Leipzig Zoo will be the venue for a special edition of “Kitsch und Krempel”. In the open air (and hopefully under sunny skies), a safari will set out to search for jungle and adventure under the motto of “Under the Moon of Love”.

Brian Völkner studied acting at Hochschule für Musik und Theater “Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy” in Leipzig and was a member of Schauspiel Leipzig’s Studio from 2014 to 2016. He joined the theatre’s acting company in 2016/17.
