Set in the world of expressionist painter Otto Dix, as Julia Berber - Anita Berber's fictional sister, Aletia Upstairs explores Weill, Brecht, and Weimar cabaret songs like Alabama Song, Falling in Love Again, Pirate Jenny, Barbara Song, Lavender Song and I Am A Vamp. The not-so-famous Berber sister relates the Weimar period to contemporary events with a fair balance of pathos and comedy as well as audience sing-alongs.
"Aletia gave a great performance full of passion and humour. The audience loved it.? - ★★★★★ Patrick Harrington (Counter Culture)
"Challenging and courageous. This lady in red shines like a new-born star." - Kevin Short (International Times)
"A Queer Love of Dix is a quality piece of theatre and performance art... a well-crafted script and beautifully sung songs... a performance of mastery." - ★★★★★ Mark Calvert (Mumble)
With an exceptional appearance by the outrageously flamboyant Doctor Woof.
