Berlin, February 1933, the new German leadership orders the closure of all ‘venues which promote immorality’. But Felix, the emcee of the depraved Fabulett, still has a story to tell.

Set at the transition from one of the most liberal societies of its time with the world’s first gay rights movement, where the first queer anthem was composed, one of the first gay-themed movies was made, and the first gender-affirming surgeries were performed, to one of the biggest tragedies in human history, Fabulett 1933 is a queer tale of in/visibility with an original story and score, featuring music, ideas, and lives classified as ‘degenerate’ by the Nazis.

Before heading to Underbelly @ Bristo Square in Edinburgh, Fabulett 1933 makes a stop at The Other Palace Studio.
