Dagmarr's Kabarett: Indefinite Leave to Remain

A love letter to London in the words & music of The Pet Shop Boys

This show is part of MT Pride Lab. Explore the season & find out more here!


Indefinite Leave to Remain is the new show by Dagmarr’s Kabarett.

A love letter to London from the heart of eternal nomad ghost Hersh Dagmarr as he & his pianist/arranger extraordinaire Karen Newby deconstruct the songs of The Pet Shop Boys & transport them to the Weimar era.

Hersh Dagmarr is a London-based Queer singer/songwriter & visual artist. His visceral inspiration from the grand Weimar Berlin era mixed with his own experience as a club kid from the noughties & the 2010s evolves into a unique blend of jazz, dance & electronic avant-pop with elements of cabaret mixed in.  

“My interest in music is quite polar. It’s equally coming from a faraway past and a rather distant future. Like some kind of haunting past life.”

Karen Newby is an accomplished, classically trained versatile piano vocalist, with an ever-expanding repertoire covering all styles. Karen performs in 5-star venues around the world.

'The stellar Dagmarr's Kabarett, a French singer and a British classic pianist giving us pure cabaret to sing us into the night' ★★★★★ QX Magazine
