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 Ada Tindall, on piano, Shura Greenberg, on contrabass and a prologue by the outrageously flamboyant Doctor Woof.
