​Cabaret songs from golden and not quite so golden times.

"Germany's greatest living singer", the renowned German magazine Die Zeit declared in the early 90s. Both before and since, the extraordinary cabaret artist Georgette Dee has established herself as one of the greatest stage personas in Europe.

For decades, she has, together with pianist and composer Terry Truck, rediscovered beautiful songs from the Weimar Republic and other periods of the past, and made them their own. At the same time, the duo also created a separate catalogue of mood-inducing, unforgettable songs. She is one of Germany's most important custodians of the legacy of Brecht and Weill, but gems from popular music have also crept into the repertoire. Georgette Dee is happy to interpret Tom Waits' Strange Weather or Eurythmic's Sweet Dreams, and even songs that are seemingly sung to death appear shiny and new in her versions.

On stage, she – or he, for Georgette Dee is a true stage persona – kicks in every direction with pin sharp observational skill and witty remarks that can turn the mood from one of poignant beauty to harsh realism in an instant. In Shakespeare's sonnets, which visited the Bergen International Festival in 2017, she tied the performance together in the role of untraditional master of ceremonies.
