With each edition she welcomes a new selection of whimsical artists on stage. Sensual, dark, whimsical, enchanting. A journey into a timeless world of night. Leave your worries at the door for an evening. Curated and produced by Impresario Teka aka Thomas Kaufmann.

Mona Gamie - Drag & Vocals:
Zurich drag queen Mona Gamie with roots in Schaffhausen has charm, mischievousness and nostalgia. In the meantime, the diseuse, who has matured into a travesty diva, also takes the audience into past worlds and casts a spell over them by means of nostalgic chansons. A distinctive feature are the interpretations of international pop culture in her poetic mother tongue: uf Schwizerdütsch. Mona hosts pop bingos that have become legendary. www.monagamie.ch/

Teka - Idea, direction and production:
Salon Morpheus is staged and produced by Thomas Kaufmann alias Teka. He is a vaudeville theater and film director as well as an assistant film director in over twenty feature film productions. In 2016 he created "Salon Morpheus" and has been steadily developing it. From 2010 to 2018 he was part of "Cabaret Bizarre" - an extravagant cabaret show involving the figureheads of European neo-cabaret with over 40 performances. In 2008, he co-founded the "Cabaret Cru" in Rio de Janeiro. In 2014, he directed the science fiction short film "Alekto", which was screened at around 50 international film festivals and won over a dozen awards.

Salon Morpheus:
Inspired by cabarets and vaudeville shows from the early years of the 20th century, Salon Morpheus reinterprets them with novel and contemporary artistic and content elements. With an inclusive cast, Salon Morpheus seeks to reflect the diversity of society and offers a place to socially diverse people. The inclusion of all persons is close to our hearts. In the spirit of its myth, the ensemble is faithfully oriented to its namesake: the legendary Morpheus, god of dreams in Greek mythology.

In the almost seven years of its existence, Salon Morpheus has developed its own identity. By consistently creating its own visual language and ductus, it clearly stands out from conventional variety programs and thus represents an innovative interpretation.

The audience:
Salon Morpheus is aimed at people interested in culture, tending to be between 25 and 70 years of age. Due to the broad spectrum, people of different colors and from diverse scenes are addressed. With the request "well-groomed appearance desired", the audience is invited to attend the performances in special attire. This also creates a colorful mixture of illustrious guests in the auditorium, which completes the atmosphere.
