Nikko Weidemann

Ich seh' Monster


Guitars, drum set, amplifier, speakers − the stage is set for an entire band. However, only one person appears: the fabulous composer (for the Moka Efti Orchestra in «Babylon Berlin») − arranger, musician and singer Nikko Weidemann. As a sort of human jukebox, he presents the rather large soundtrack of his life in a very personal solo evening. Apart from songs by influential musicians such as Bartók or Zappa, he also interprets those of artists he has collaborated with: Rio Reiser, Nena, Einstürzende Neubauten, Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright, to name but a few. Together with director Tom Stromberg, Nikko Weidemann has devised a wonderful evening, which is a concert as well as a biographical piece of theatre. He includes almost 50 songs, some of them ten-second excerpts, others are complete. Either way, Nikko Weidemann breathes his soul into all of them. (ron)
