Jack Woodhead

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.

Saleh Yazdani

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.
