German electro-punk puppeteer hits Wellington


German electro-punk puppeteer hits Wellington

She dons a sparkly pink jumpsuit, dances with a trussed-up bear and delivers her shrieky brand of bleepy, politicised electro-punk from the window of a glittering puppet show.

Räuberhöhle is Berlin's tattooed girl wonder, and she's coming to New Zealand - for one show only - here in Wellington on Wednesday 8 March.

Once upon a time a pretty messy girl sat in her chaotic robber's cave (her räuberhöhle) and decided to be a pop star. Gifted an old CASIO keyboard, a mike and an archaic computer, she started mucking around with sounds, getting gigs in Berlin clubs and bars, delighting audiences with her anarchic live antics and spontaneous and clever on-stage puppeteering.

From the squats of Oslo to the punk clubs of Warsaw, Räuberhöhle is now a bona-fide underground star in Europe, known for her creative and subversive shows and her unpredictability. Her own chick on speed, Räuberhöhle is an edgier, punkier and blunter Peaches that both slams and pays homage to the emergent tradition of Berlin poppy randomness.

Supported by boppy electro Wellingtonians Disasteradio and Goodbye Galaxy, Räuberhöhle will take to the stage at Valve on Wednesday 8 March.

Räuberhöhle is currently touring in Australia and is available for interview by phone. She will be in Wellington from Sunday 5 March and from then will be up for face-to-face chats.

Diasasteradio and Goodbye Galaxy are also available for interview.
