Where Are We Now

Sven Ratzke is blessed. With a direct line to Bowie. In a spiritual sense, of course. The singer/entertainer proved it at Boulevard 2018, where his show Starman soared beyond the superlative. Ratzke and Bowie floated far above the moon, and the audience. This summer Ratzke [1977] is presenting a different side to his idol: Bowie the great songsmith, the eggshell poet. In an intimate setting he broaches Bowie-esque themes like mortality, love, and death. Ratzke dips some of these stories in correction fluid, to wash away the annoying line between truth and imagined truth. Where Are We Now is a journey across Bowie’s near cinematic universe. Character to character, scene to scene, until the essence is laid bare.
