Jarvis Cocker, British pop legend and frontman of Pulp, is a remarkable storyteller – and in recent years has gained cult status as a radio personality on the BBC. In 2012 he began to host the award-winning late night radio series “Wireless Nights” on BBC Radio 4. Since then, Jarvis has been collecting nocturnal stories and characters – “to investigate the human condition after dark”. In his exploration of the subconscious – unknown and obscure – music obviously plays a large part, as do historical sound recordings. At the Haus der Berliner Festspiele, he will tell stories featuring characters from Bach to Nixon, sing songs and venture into the classical repertoire with Junges Sinfonieorchester Berlin, seeing us through the twilight hours into the deepest darkness of the night.
