The benefit concert against hate and exclusion

For the second time this year, the benefit concert #GEMEINSAMBUNT will take place. Based on an idea by Sebastian Stipp and together with Anne von Knoblauch and Olivia Schaaf, the project got rolling in 2019. Anne and Sebastian are contact persons of the Berlin police for lesbians, gays, bisexuals as well as trans- and intersex people (LSBTI).

Theater director Martin Woelffer is pleased about the event, which sets a new accent in the program of the comedy. "The fact that the Berlin police have a department that works against hate crime makes me proud of my city, because hate corrodes our society. With this event, we are happy to show our colors and hope that we can contribute a bit to preventing hate from spreading further and further. Because we are convinced: art works!" At the second benefit concert "#GEMEINSAMBUNT", renowned artists* such as Nadja Benaissa, Michael Dixon, Nico Gaik, Michael Heller, Melanie Müller, Lars Redlich, Antje Rietz, Luci van Org, Charley Ann Schmutzler, the ensemble of the study-preparatory training musical of the music school Neukölln, Die Herzschrittmacher, the choir in the Komödie am Kurfürstendamm, as well as Sebastian Stipp will perform. For he was, before he became a policeman, a musical performer.

The artists will be accompanied by Christian Köhler and the Brandenburg State Police Orchestra as well as Bijan Azadian.

Gerlinde Jänicke will lead the program.

The proceeds of the gala will go to charitable projects for a diverse Berlin.
