After the success of its Edinburgh Festival debut in 2018, Full Moon Cabaret is back for more! Unlike any cabaret you've ever attended, the Full Moon Cabaret is Berlin's wittiest, wildest, and most inventive monthly varieté. The sexy and subversive programme features burlesque, circus arts, dance, music, and wacky interactive audience antics, all exploring a theme derived from what the Native Americans called the full moon.

Full Moon Cabaret is excited to return for the entire festival this year, with 3 or 4 of its most successful shows to be performed in rotating repertory:
FULL MOON CABARET // THE BEAVER MOON
When Native Americans dubbed the November full moon "The Beaver Moon" they little anticipated that one day, the toothy aquatic mammal would be a euphemism for female genitalia. For the Beaver Moon, the Full Moon Cabaret dives fearlessly into the salacious slang to explore female power, fierce female icons, and that mysterious center of female pleasure: the clitoris.
FULL MOON CABARET // THE FISH MOON
The Full Moon Cabaret invites sailors, sirens, buccaneers, & all the fish in the sea to take the plunge into an underwater kingdom for the Fish Moon. This full moon features sea shanties sung in harmony by The Sea Salts with interpretive dancing by the Full Moon Players. Plus deep sea debaucheries including audience-interactive treasure hunts to recover the long-lost booty of a pair of female pirates.
FULL MOON CABARET // THE BLUE MOON
A blue moon refers to the rare occurrence when there is a second full moon in a single month. But not only is the color blue a signifier of rarity, but blue is also a euphemism for pornography. A parade of the perverted and peculiar, the Blue Moon is a fever of filth and fantasy, featuring a drinking game to the dirtiest blues song ever written.
FULL MOON CABARET // THE FLOWER MOON
Stroke your pistils & stamens at a sweet summery love-in, featuring absurd mating rituals, tropical delights, frolicking fauns, and plenty of petal petting. This full moon climaxes (ahem) in Viva Lamore's notorious burlesque interpretation of A Midsummer Nights Dream.
