A European echo

Pechschwarz revives a period marked by profound human catastrophe. The bitter chansons, sad ballads, dark melodramas and acerbic texts of this performance, mostly from the 1900s and 1930s, reflect the psychological and emotional state of a society in Europe used to dealing with violence, revenge, despair and madness. The profound and entertaining evening insightfully plunges the depths of the human psyche, bringing to light the grotesque, the curious and the cynical.
