About Weimar Productions

cabaretpic

‘Weimar Productions’ is a brand spanking-new initiative based in North Wales whose first venture is to run a number of themed cabaret nights. The first of these was held at Hendre Hall on December 7th.

Weimar Productions is a bilingual initiative which seeks to develop creativity, innovation and imagination, particularly during the ongoing recession.

Weimar Productions works with a number of talented local artists and performers,  can tailor an individual  themed event for your special occasion and also provides a costume hire service.

The Weimar Republic coincided with a particularly cosmopolitan, creative, Bohemian, politically left-leaning, subversive in every sense, period of political/ socio-cultural history in Germany, which for a decade and more danced in the face of the 1920s-30s recession, the rise of facism, (‘storm clouds gathering over Europe’…). Think Christopher Isherwood, Marlene Dietrich, the musical ‘Cabaret’.
