Floy: Me, Myself and Janis Joplin at the English Theatre

On the 50th anniversary of Janis Joplin's death, the Hamburg soul singer Floy verbally and musically moves thoughts on what the spirit of Janis Joplin meant to her and the world, then and now. A spirit of departure, of the unconventional, of freedom and revolution. Because tearing down inner and outer boundaries has lost little of its topicality.

Soul singer Floy, who has fascinated audiences for decades, not only in her native Hamburg, reveals in this rousing show what her original inspiration was to become a soul, blues and gospel singer.

Successful director and director of the English Theatre in Hamburg, Paul Glaser (Apologia, The Picture of Dorian Grey), together with Floy and virtuoso pianist Lutz Krajenski, brings this spirit back to the stage.

"This play is not a classical musical, play or concert, but rather an encounter with the inspiration Janis Joplin", so Paul Glaser
