ALCHEMISTIC CABARET 2017



Since 2006 AUXXX has been bringing audiences in Amsterdam and Berlin unique evenings of music, film, dance, poetry and performance, specialising in programs with new and unexpected combinations. AUXXX has succeeded in combining diverse artists and their audiences in a special way, tapping into creative undercurrents and opening up new channels. In April 2017 AUXXX starts afresh, inaugurating a new series of their celebrated Alchemistic Cabaret at ACKERSTADT PALAST in Berlin Mitte.

ALCHEMISTIC CABARET part 1

KOMPASS

Camilla M. Feher - dance, voice, sound
Veronika Zott - dance, voice, sound

A performance investigating how the nature of space affects our movements, thoughts and habits in communication. Performing in an environment infused with sound, Feher and Zott play with the ways in which movements are expressed in sound, forming a real time composition in space. In a dynamic fusion of choreographed movement and composed sound - the performers bodies begin to function as antennae - receiving and transmitting signals...

ASHES

Steve Heather – drums
Hilary Jeffery – trombone
Julia Reidy – guitar
Richard Scott – modular synthesizer
+ special guest:
Thomas Olbrechts - saxophone

Electric and raw - ASHES deliver a unique brand of groove-based music. Encompassing jilted funk, driving rock grooves, searching soundscapes and frantic shifting textures. A displaced British-Australian quartet all currently based in Berlin, creating a fresh and compelling approach to hard hitting improv rock. Their enthusiastically received debut concert at Nickelsdorf Konfrontationen Festival in 2015 was followed in 2016 by a collaboration with Elliot Sharp in Berlin. In 2017 they will appear at Ulrichsberger Kaleidophon # 32 and unveil a new set of studio recordings.

THREE EVENINGS WITH DANNY O REALLY



DANNY O REALLY, who passed away on 21 January 2017, was a true original with many friends and fans. He supported AUXXX from its early beginnings in Amsterdam, both morally and as a sound engineer + performer. His last live appearance was at AUXXX Berlin on Sunday 20 November 2016 when he summoned all his strength to rock out with old friends from ZAGREB.

The cremation of Danny's body including a ceremony for family and friends took place on 31 January 2017 in Berlin. There will be 3 special memorial concerts this year in Berlin, Zagreb and Amsterdam to honour Danny's life and spirit. Details below, all are welcome.
