Everything you always wanted to know about pornography, but were afraid to ask Andrew Lloyd Webber.

This year, the International Summer Festival is once again helping cement Hamburg’s reputation as the musical gate to the world. All-round musical genius Thies Mynther – known for having worked as a musician, composer and producer with bands like Phantom Ghost and Chicks On Speed, as well as for having worked on various theater productions – has collaborated with Israeli theater artist Jason Danino Holt to create a musical examination of pornography in the era of its digital reproduction. For the occasion, they have assembled an illustrious ensemble of local and supra-regional showbusiness talents: Kampnagel’s Queereeoké late-night stars Dancing Sven and Danny Banany make their earlynight debut alongside Berlin singer, dancer and performer Jill Emerson and Hamburg’s Fee R. Kürten (who is currently touring internationally with her post-pop project Tellavision). Based on the biography of American ballerina and porn-chic queen Georgina Spelvin (“The Devil in Miss Jones”), they examine the pornification of society from the consumer’s perspective – a mixture of biographical confession, fictional role-playing and everything in between.
