Cabaret Bizarre

An Intimate Look behind the Scenes of Cabaret Bizarre

Lavish photography book with an extraordinary layout

With a text by X Schneeberger (2021 Swiss Literature Prize)

The photographer Kostas Maros has been accompanying the artists and performers of Cabaret Bizarre since 2013 in the course of their appearances throughout Europe. The photographs, which have been awarded numerous prizes, were taken both during the performances and also backstage. Intimate and unadorned, they show moments of tension prior to performances or those moments of euphoric exhaustion after the show.

Cabaret Bizarre was inspired by the gloomy, sombre cabaret and variety theatres in Berlin in the 1920s and early 1930s, as well as by the surreal aesthetic of Federico Fellini and Luis Buñuel. It is a freak show, a carnival of desires, a masked ball of extremes, for flamboyant personalities and non-conformists. The sumptuous photography book celebrates this intoxicating nighttime counter world, where the beautiful and the ugly, elegance and trash, go hand in hand.
