Where is the freak in us? How big or how small one has to be To understand this world and be part of it? Are six arms enough to comfort someone? How many hearts must a women have to live her destiny? Is our hand big enough to hold vereything we want?
How many red noses do we have to put on to be fanny? Or may be the red nose has to be as big as a circus tent? A freak amazes us, because he doesn´t fit in the norm. Because he is a giant or has three legs. From time to time we see something fascinating without fully understanding it. We have to scratch under the surface. In our show all kind of freaks come together, like the „Dreamer“, the „Avarice Man“, „Amanda“ the woman with the world´s longest hair, the siam twins and many others. „The Tiger Lillies Freakshow“ is like a sharp knife either opening a package full of sweets and nice things for you or stabbing a pinkballon in front of your eyes. Both of these possible scenarios are accompanied by the music of the Tiger Lillies.
(...) a splendid-beautiful fight announcement to being
(...) basically they are a single raw provocation. But their latest show pushes the game they play in perfection since their foundation in 1989 to the terrific peak. Though it´s only two hours the Tiger Lilies spend on Stage. But they are simply knocking over.
The Tiger Lilies perform a matchless Show mixing Varieté, Pop- and Rock Concert.
A fascinating performance enchanted on stage by cult director Sebastiano Toma with plenty of English Humor.
What these Tiger-Musician-Freaks succeed in this evening is splendid entertainment and coincedently letting us realize that being a freak is simply something normal.
