Hans Unstern is back! With the third album DIVEN (DIVAS) and the show of the same name, the infamous singer/songwriter/doll is touring through the country again for the first time after seven-and-a-half years. The new songs and texts feel especially comfortable on the artist’s self-made harp: contrasexual love songs and shimmery agitprop fairytales for a post-shaving world, from money to plastic candy, notwithstanding. Metamorphoses of words and lyrics worthy of a diva!
Sound: Baptiste Moulin
Light: Catalina Fernandez
