Edson Cordeiros frivolous Berlin is "different from the others"!
Eu? Modelo? Claro - Edson Cordeiro!
Lübeck, October 2021: Countertenor Edson Cordeiro, Brazilian superstar on a dizzying 4-octave, Grammy-nominated guest on the most important stages in Europe, is our star model for a new round of portraits and shows his multifaceted versatility in facial expressions and gestures. With his original stage clothing in his luggage, he transformed the Lübeck studio into an elegant Berlin salon during the Weimar Republic with a dim candlelit atmosphere. We are excited!
In his new stage repertoire together with the BABYLON ORCHESTER BERLIN, Cordeiro brings the frivolous Berlin of the 1920s to life: "We only love the purple night, which is sultry because we are different from the others" - based on the classic silent film "Different from the others" from 1919. The wonderful video "Edson Cordeiro - Eu? Modelo?" emerged from the creative hands of Oliver Bieber. The song in the video, "Das lila Lied" (The Lavender Song), was recorded by Edson with the BABYLON ORCHESTER BERLIN at the Teddy Awards 2020 (queer film award at Berlinale).
There were intensive graphic encounters on two afternoons in Bernd Rose's studio. More drawings by Edson Cordeiro under "You are" - "Atelier talk". Thank you for the kind publishing rights to the management of Edson Cordeiro.
... and many thanks to the great Edson. Bravo!
