#teddyartist: David Pereira

David Pereira‘s acrobatics took the varieté houses of Germany by storm. His impassioned performances in the air and on the ground combine physicality, dance, acrobatics and passion in a perfect Gesamtkunstwerk. Already at the age of 19, he got the idea to create his own show: “David Pereira’s Trip” became an institution at the Wintergarten in Berlin and has travelled to places like the Melbourne Art Center in Australia.

#teddyartist: Jack Woodhead

Jack Woodhead is a reincarnation of the cabaret in modern attire. His own show “Fish and Whips” is one of Berlin’s burlesque comedy must-see events. With flawless piano playing and grandiose singing, he always manages to walk the fine line between loud, funny, trashy tones and calm poetics.

#teddyartist: Jade Lee Petersen

He bends his body into virtually impossible positions: South African Jade Lee Petersen is one of the few male contortionists. He was discovered by the art pool BASE BERLIN, the first to bring him to Germany. In Berlin, he developed a rococo rock contortion performance with varieté producers Markus Pabst and Pierre Caesar. Before the audience’s eyes, multi-faceted images emerge between the person and his costume. The superlatively heterogenous elements of style blend together into a single unit, into the fascinating lines of a being effectively androgynous.

#teddyartist: Pierre Caesar

A master of the winds: Varieté director Pierre Caesar is performing again, set to float over the stage at the Teddy Awards. In a harness specially developed for him, he can defy gravity, flying as if on his own. He nails breathtaking double corks and triple somersaults with fascinating ease. Pierre Caesar displayed his bungee skills for the first time in front of Queen Elizabeth II at the Royal Variety Show. Now, he performs a new form at the Teddy Award. We believe he can fly!

Sigrid Grajek (aka comedy figure “Coco Lorès”) sees in Claire Waldoff the “mother of all cabaret satirists”. With suitable passion, the actress brings the life and songs of the notable cabaret singer to the stage by stepping into the character of Claire Waldoff and having her sing, play and tell things just like they are.
