Sequins, sass, shimmying and ghetto hip hop; not your usual Monday night fare, however when it comes to Hans the German (Matt Gilbertson), anything goes.
Adelaide’s favourite accordion player leaves no stone unturned in the search for hot hip hop tracks, to put his unique spin on, as he takes his audience on a journey of ghetto magic.
Accompanied by his dancers, The Lucky Bitches and his band, The Ungrateful Bastards, as well as some special guests, Hans is rocking das haus party and everyone’s invited.
He raps, he sings, he dances and he chooses victims, (read: volunteers) from the audience who become part of his cast, making the improvisation and spontaneity just as exciting and hilarious as his scripted work.
Performing a catalogue of fantastic hip hop and RnB tracks from the past two decades, Hans camps up gangsta and gets down and dirty with it.
Wearing an array of sexy, sparkly, and utterly fabulous costumes made by his mother (just like Beyonce – they have so much in common!), Hans busts his moves to tracks like Blu Cantrell’s ‘Hit ‘Em Up Style’, Jay-Z’s ’99 Problems’ and Kelis’ ‘Milkshake’.
There’s never a dull moment and when the audience isn’t laughing, they’re singing, dancing, clapping or doing all of the aforesaid.
Hans in Das Haus will lift your spirits and make you happy not to be livin’ in a gangster’s paradise, but there’s only one show left, so grab a ticket and enjoy the charismatic pseudo European doing what he does best.
ip hop on over to Fringetix and snap up your ticket to see Berlin’s Boy Wonder throw his Hans in the air like he just don’t care.
