The Songs of David Bowie

“The ghost of David Bowie is alive and well and residing at La Mama in New York. Ratzke is a vessel for Bowie’s spirit: He unearths emotional depths in this captivating evening. That Ratzke succeeds is a testament to his skill and artistry as both a writer and performer.”  – The Theatre Times ★★★★★

In his brand-new show Where Are We Now the international cabaret superstar dives into the universe of the iconic pop legend in an intimate setting of piano and voice. With his acclaimed pianoman Jetse De Jong, Ratzke unravels the songs of the master in all their beauty and pureness, taking you to another universe with his poetic and unique storytelling.

Where Are We Now arrives in Christchurch on the heels of sell-out shows in Berlin, New York, Amsterdam and London. Receiving rave reviews and standing ovations across the world, this show promises an evening that is soulful, surprising and highly entertaining.
