The sultry chanteuse, who has made an indelible mark interpreting the dark gems of Bertolt Brecht, Kurt Weill and the French chanson, revisits the timeless repertoire of Berlin cabaret and lends her distinctive flair to contemporary classics.
Ute Lemper's performing career grows out of a passionate and enduring commitment to art, politics and history, and out of a contentious and complicated relationship with her homeland and its past. Her panache, versatility and sophisticated repertoire - including Berlin cabaret songs and the dark gems of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill - have led her to international acclaim as a recording artist, and in the theatre, cabaret and film worlds.
Her engagement at London's Shaw Theatre includes songs by Ferre, Piaf, Prevert, Brel, Hollaender, Weil, Brecht, Lemper, Waits, Mitchell among others.
