Where puppets dance and rap: Canadian musical troublemaker Socalled resuscitates the golden age of the Broadway musical with a large ensemble and funk legend Fred Wesley.

Socalled’s THE SEASON was the big hit of Summer Festival 2014: the anarcho-puppet musical about forest-animal friends and a magical alien was such a success that we had to add extra shows. Now we are producing THE 2ND SEASON, through which musician, composer, rapper, magician, cartoonist and Summer Festival accomplice Josh »Socalled« Dolgin, continues to live out his twisted musical passion in the theater. With actor Joe Cobden – known for, among other projects, the TV show »Fargo« – he has continued the story of the forest animals. Now the forest has been cleared and the beaver runs a museum about what life was like before. The bear spends his life in the big city, enslaved in a trombone factory. It belongs to Mr. Embouchure, the only human in the puppet musical, played by music legend Fred Wesley, who is known for his work with James Brown and as the »architect of funk music«. Together with Wesley, Hamburg’s Kaiser Quartett and a dozen excited collaborators from Canada’s artistic upper crust (including underground-rapper C-Rayz Walz) Josh Dolgin creates a musical evening that brings together puppetry, theater, dance and live music and recalls the golden era of the Broadway musical.

Extra-Shows for Children: Alongside the evening shows for enchantment-ready adults, we are also showing THE 2ND SEASON in the afternoons with a German voice-over for young people from 6 years on.
