Miss Walker (Magdalena Walker) is a Berlin-based singer-songwriter. After studying music in Hamburg, she spent three years in England to complete her BA Music at Plymouth University in 2011 and her MA in Performance Practice in 2013. With voice and piano she tells loud and quiet stories from getting lost and flying, exploring themes of longing and celebrating the contradictions of life. Her music is heartfelt and strong, creating a warm and intimate atmosphere that invites you to go on the journey with her. Hamburg, New York, England and Berlin have all contributed their whirlwinds of life to her music and make her colourful-mellow sound so unique.
Silent Rocco (Rocco Menzel) is a mime artist also living in Berlin. He’s been dedicated to this art form for more than 20 years. Shortly after moving to Berlin to study mime professionally, he cofounded Metroccolis – a company for all his artistic creations. Since then, he’s successfully performing all over the world, either with one of his nonverbal walkabout acts or one of his mime shows. While keeping costumes & stage design to an elegant minimum, his major focus is the core of mime in which technique and body skills are as crucial as touching stories. And for such a touching story, both artists teamed up and created „The Greatest Thing“, fusing music and pantomime to a unique new fairytale.

A musical neofairytale unfolds in front of the ears and eyes of the audience, rife with enchanting live songs, interactive moments and captivating artistry.
