Blue Angels And Pirate Jennys

Ute Lemper takes us on a tour of the seductive, smoke-filled cabaret clubs of Berlin past and present. A century after cabaret first arrived in Berlin, the city is still synonymous with cabaret in all its guises - from variety acts to subversive satire.

Ute traces the development of the form and asks the latest generation of cabaret artistes whether the contemporary German kabarett has retained its reputation for topical satire and political iconoclasm. Has the current international climate created a new generation of Pirate Jennys?
