TransVision

LIVE from The Ballery Berlin

TransVision started as a livestream show and political cabaret from The Ballery during the COVID-19 pandemic. When the entire world was locked down, we tried to find a way to connect to people at home.

Viruses, conflicts, capitalism, racism, sexism and all the isms. Beyond getting mired in the gloom of it all, we mused, played and gave voice to the politics of the time.

The show’s sketches are performed by a varying cast of repertory and newer cast members. Directed by Simon Williams, with music leader and pianist Matt Long and camera by Ansgar Schwarz, TransVision has a mind of its own…

Still in its infant stage, TransVision develops with each episode. Each show is filmed and broadcast live in one continued shot. Until now it has been created with zero budget and with hardly any rehearsals, It all comes together in that one moment.
