For those unlucky few who weren’t able to join us for the famously fabulous TEDDY AWARD ceremony, you can see the entire ceremony here! Highlights include Wieland Speck’s annual speech, Sate Minister Markus’ Prabst defiant proclamation against homophobia, Jack Woodhead’s upside-down piano-playing, and Linn de Quebrada’s stunning stage performance.
Ladies & Gentleman, please let me introduce to you our host for the Award Ceremony: Jack Woodhead!
How beautiful that there is a place for dazzling personalities on this world: once he hits the keys you´ll immidiately recognize that he is a classical trained pianist. Jack Woodhead embodies all other facets of his sparkling personality in no less convincing fashion. No one wears Haute Couture this casual, thinks that fast, trippy, original and makes a charming host like he does. Jack Woodhead is an allround performer who you can´t resist.
On February 17th, 2017 at 9.00 pm the festive TEDDY Award Ceremony will take place – and afterwards the big Backstage Partyand After Show Lounge begins! at Haus der Berliner Festspiele. Here, you will find a first overview over the artists that will be live on stage during the ceremony and at the party, and you will get a first impression of what to expect from that night.
Bettina Köster is a german singer and author who became internationally known with her band Malaria! and their indie hit Kaltes, klares Wasser. Her warm and deep voice stands in the tradition of smoky diseuses like Marianne Faithful, Nico or Marlene Dietrich. Her music is also influenced by wave music and early electronic music of the 80s.
Singer, pianist and componist Jack Woodhead, the star of various variety-, burlesque-, and circus shows will be our host at this evening and will bring us a lot of joy with his piano performances.
In a wild club-kid style he rides on a wooden rocking horse into a cold world full of concrete buildings and concrete heads. With the power of fantasy and his artistic handstands on the wooden rocking horse he triumphs against the tristesse of everyday life.
VJ Alkis is a multimedia artist from Vienna and will be doing live visuals during the backstage party.
Kertin Ott is a DJane who is highly in demand all over Germany. With a mix of modern dance pop and a typically German sound, Kerstin fought her way up to the second place in the chart and stayed in the Top 10 for 25 weeks in 2015. She is currently on tour in support of her latest album ‘Herzbewohner’.
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.
