Darüber hinaus zog Aarons Talent die Aufmerksamkeit zahlreicher weiterer berühmter Künstler auf sich.

So wählte Twyla Tharp ihn in den frühen Neunzigerjahren als ihren persönlichen Tanzpartner aus und der legendäre Mikhail Baryshnikov engagierte ihn für seine Welttournee. Sein Wissen und seine innovativen und kreativen Fähigkeiten als Tänzer, Choreograf und Künstlerischer Berater sind weltweit gefragt.

Roclan Gonzales ChavezChoreographer

Born in Cuba, Roclan Gonzalez Chavez studied at the prestigious Escuela Nacionales in Havana, graduating in 1996 with a distinction in both contemporary and folk dance and was the only person in his class to be awarded a post-graduate scholarship to study choreography. Since then he has worked with most of Cuba‘s best known music and dance groups, including Omar Portuanda, Company Segundo, salsa big band Los Van Van and the famous Tropicana Cabaret. He is the main choreographer of the Cuban television ballet with regular performances on TV programs and state events. For the past five years, he has choreographed the national Cuban music awards, Cuba disco and many music videos for top Cuban bands.
His recent international tours include choreographies for the hit shows Lady Salsa, and The Kings of Salsa, which for the last seven years have toured in Europe, Asia, Australia and the USA to great critical acclaim. He has also worked extensively all over South America and studied many styles from this region, from Brazilian samba and contemporary ballet to Argentinean tango. Roclan has an unrivalled understanding of salsa and Cuban dance’s folkloric roots, which he blends with breathtaking contemporary moves producing a unique dance fusion. He is hailed as one of the most talented and versatile young choreographers to have come out of Cuba in the last decade.

Jorge GonzalezCostume Design

He is the king of high heels and the „Chicas Walk“ has long been his trademark. Whilst still a student the life of the native Cuban Jorge González turned to the topic of fashion:
In parallel to his nuclear ecology studies in Bratislava and during his extended stays in Prague, Jorge already made his fi rst contacts with the fashion business. He fi rst worked as a model and stylist, and later as a choreographer and organizer of fashion shows, including a show for President Havel’s family. After completing his university degree, he moved from Prague to Hamburg and in Germany, the largest fashion market in Europe, he quickly made a name for himself. Jorge was hired for relevant campaigns and collaborated with international designers and brands.
In 2009, he took over as catwalk coach and choreographer training the model candidates in the TV casting show „Germany‘s next Topmodel by Heidi Klum“ where he quickly became the viewers’ favourite. In spring 2011, Jorge launched his fi rst own fashion collection under the name „Chicas Walk“ in collaboration with the fashion house bonprix and was so successful that it was sold out after just three weeks.
After numerous TV appearances and the release of his song „Don’t Touch My Shoes“ Jorge has been appearing on the RTL TV show „Let‘s Dance“ as a jury member, since April 2013. Here he is committed to his second great passion, dance.
In a sense, Jorge has always moved like a salsa dancer through life – hard to believe that his path to the big glitzy world was long, and he had to keep his chin up more than once. For the first time he recounts all this as well as how he managed to become the man he is in his new book „Hola Chicas! On the catwalk of my life,“ which was published in March 2013 by Heyne Verlag.
He also works as a stylist and image consultant for celebrities and is involved in the development of communication concepts for well-known brands.
Jorge Gonzalez, whose fi rst career choice as a little child was to be a dancer, has been particularly happy to be able to combine his passions for fashion and dance as a costume designer in Ballet Revolución since 2012.
His motto: „How you go, you go through life!“

Mark BradyProducer

Mark Brady is a leading Australian producer with a passion for making live entertainment infused with cultural richness and diversity accessible to western audiences.
Mark Brady was breathing showbiz from a young age since his family boasts a long tradition of producing and promoting artists worldwide. Mark’s grandfather was a major venue owner in Berlin during the roaring twenties when the cabaret era fl ourished and he ran one of the most exclusive cabaret night clubs of that time. Mark’s father Tony Brady is recognized as one of the most respected and experienced entertainment producers/promoters in Australia and internationally. Consequently, from very early on Mark became familiar with the world of entertainment backstage. Mark was not always keen on working in the entertainment industry and resisted entering the family business, going through a fleeting romance with the notion of being a pilot. Family friends talked him out of the idea and at that point his attention was drawn to the entertainment industry.
Shortly after completing his schooling, Mark commenced working in the family agency and was involved in the booking side of the business, which gave him valuable experience in the mechanics of the industry. During this time, Mark, an accomplished pianist, was working in the agency by day and performed as a pianist by night. In his mid-twenties, Mark pursued his passion for music and worked as a full-time pianist in Vienna and Berlin in between a couple of seasons spent working in the Alps.
Upon his return to Australia, Mark returned to the business but had decided he wanted to do different projects and so he began developing the theatrical show arm of the business. Mark’s first success was Gaelforce Dance, which he co-created during the era of Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. His first foray into producing proved hugely successful and Gaelforce Dance toured Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and for a period of three years Austria, Germany and Switzerland. It was during this time with Gaelforce Dance that Mark met his wife, Majella.
In London during the late 90s, Mark met Jon Lee, who took him to a West End show called Lady Salsa. It was a tiny show with a band, eight dancers and a narrator but it caught Mark’s attention. Mark collaborated with Jon Lee and director Toby Gough and together they re-produced, recreated and re-launched Lady Salsa in Australia. The production was a great success and toured most of Europe.
Motivated by the audience’s great reception of Lady Salsa and inspired by several documentaries on Cuba, Mark along with Jon Lee and Toby Gough explored Buena Vista, Havana’s famous quarter. Home to the intensely passionate music and dance for which Cuba is famous, they created an extraordinary show The Bar at Buena Vista featuring three legends from Buena Vista, who tell its history through music and dance. The Bar at Buena Vista has been touring the world for the past eight years.
In 2003, Mark was inspired by Bollywood and so he went to India with Toby Gough and was fascinated by its cultural diversity. They started writing Merchants of Bollywood viewed by over three million theatre-goers worldwide, with two successful West End seasons, fi ve star reviews in some of the world’s most respected publications such as the New York Times and the London Times. By far this has been the Brady family’s most successful production to date. Merchants of Bollywood has successfully toured around the globe and is now in its sixth year of touring. During this time, Mark also produced smaller shows such as Kings of Salsa and traditional folklore shows around regional Australia including Spirit of Ireland and Celtic Reign.
In 2008, Thomas Collien invited Mark to see Bad Boys of Dance in Zurich. Mark instantly recognised their talent and energy and in 2010, Mark presented Bad Boys of Dance to Australia in the dynamic show, Rock the Ballet, which, after touring Australia, went on to New Zealand and Asia. With Ballet Revolución Mark Brady is revisiting his love for Cuban culture.

Jon LeeCo-Producer

Jon Lee’s career started as a professional trumpeter working extensively in London’s West End and session scene. In 1995, he formed the jazz orchestra Echoes of Ellington that toured for two years with the Birmingham Royal Ballet’s highly acclaimed jazz ballet The Nutcracker Sweeties. The orchestra also played at all the major European jazz festivals and had a regular club spot at Ronnie Scott’s.
It was at the Edinburgh Festival in 1997, that he fi rst started producing shows and his love of Latin music led him to put on his first Cuban production Lady Salsa with Toby Gough. This show went on
to run in London’s West End for 16 months and has toured the world for the past nine years in partnership with Mark Brady of ATA Allstar Artists Pty Ltd.
Since then, Mark and Jon have produced several successful show together from Cuba including The Bar at Buena Vista, The Kings of Salsa and The Creole Choir of Cuba that have all toured around the world.
Having worked in Cuba for over 11 years now, he has gained a great insight into the music and dance of this incredible country, and Ballet Revolución is a culmination of his years working there.

BB Group GmbHProducer

There can hardly be a field more vibrant and exciting than live entertainment. It takes as much passion to produce shows and to inspire audiences as it does to dance and to perform music on stage. When Michael Brenner founded BB Promotion, the core of today’s BB Group, in 1987, he wouldn’t settle for less: his commitment to a high-quality, ambitious mix of genres, including theatre, dance, and concert productions, came from the heart. Even after Brenner’s tragic passing in 2011 the BB Group, led by a long-term management team and headed by CEO Ralf Kokemüller, has remained true to its foundations and has continued to make its mark on today's international live entertainment business.

No compromise on quality or passion – the BB Group’s motto has never been more valid: 2015 marks the beginning of a newly formed partnership between the BB Group and the world’s number one live-theatre company, the Ambassador Theatre Group Ltd. (ATG). ATG becoming majority shareholder of the BB Group means that going forward, both companies will develop their international network of theatres and shape live entertainment in Europe together. Already now the companies under the umbrella of BB Group are among the market leaders in the premium live entertainment sector in Europe. They are pioneers in the production, marketing and staging of national and international tours of musicals, shows and events, as well as in the organisation of concerts and events in the west and the southwest of Germany.

By signing international stars Rudolf Nureyev and Mikhail Baryshnikov in its first years of existence, the company acquired a unique profile as an innovative co-producer of high-class ballet and dance theatre early on. This profile continues to be developed with the presentation of major dance groups such as the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Martha Graham Dance Company, Ballet Nacional de España, Béjart Ballet Lausanne, Rambert Dance Company, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Companhia de dança Deborah Colker, and Momix, to name just a few.

The BB Group’s portfolio also includes an impressive range of music and stage shows as well as musicals, including successful international productions such as STOMP (since 1997), Tap Dogs (1998-2005), Yamato– The Drummers of Japan (since 2002), Tanguera, the world’s first tango musical (since 2007), Disney Beauty and the Beast (since 2011) or Disney The Lion King (2015).

Additionally, the BB Group has long been a successful producer of distinguished productions and co-productions at European and non-European theatres, including Queen Esther Marrow's The Harlem Gospel Singers Show (since 1991), Grease (1996-98), Saturday Night Fever (1999-2006), West Side Story (since 2003), We Will Rock You (since 2004), Chicago (2005), Richard O'Brien's Rocky Horror Show (since 2008), CATS (2008), Hairspray (2009-2010), the original in-the-round production of CATS in a tailor-made theatre tent (2010-2013), Ballet Revolución (since 2012) and Bodyguard – Das Musical (since november 2015).

This commitment in all areas of upscale live entertainment is made possible only through trusting relationships with long-term national and international partners and colleagues and through personal contacts with the most brilliant creative minds in the industry: impresarios, directors, writers, composers, rock icons, promoters, pioneers, artistic directors, producers, designers, sound performers, choreographers, dancers, musicians, actors, singers, conductors, licensors, legends, divas ... we all share one goal: to always amaze and inspire people around the world.

Ralf KokemüllerProduzent und CEO BB Promotion

It takes a certain amount of courage to complete a degree in Business Administration and then to leave seeking a long-term adventure. The fact that Ralf Kokemüller took over the management of two hotels on the Venezuelan Isla Margarita in the Caribbean testifies not only to his curiosity to discover new things and his substantial desire for adventure; the fact that he tackled his tasks under difficult conditions over a long period demonstrates his professionalism.

The greatest adventure for Ralf Kokemüller began after his return to Germany: his interest in what brings people together in enthusiastic crowds, whether football, rock concerts or stage shows, spurred him to take the opportunity to join BB Promotion (forerunners of today’s BB Group) in 1995.

Through his close collaboration with the group founder, Michael Brenner, who appointed him as Managing Director after a year, BB Group became one of the most successful live entertainment agencies in Germany and Europe, and the two men’s business acquaintance flourished into a strong friendship which turned into an obligation for Ralf Kokemüller following Michael Brenner’s tragic death.

Passion, pragmatism and a significant portion of dry humour have proven to be a successful combination for Ralf. Responsible for scouting and booking, he has been in charge of numerous internationally acclaimed productions, such as STOMP, Marcel Marceau, Tanguera and YAMATO – The Drummers of Japan, as well as numerous other internationally-acclaimed productions.

As CEO of the BB Group, Ralf Kokemüller, upholds the BB Group’s maxim to discover new and fascinating shows and artists and to realise the high-quality shows with great passion. The productions and co-productions, whose realisation he has been able to celebrate in German-speaking countries, include spectacular show experiences, such as THRILLER - LIVE, Irish Celtic or Soy de Cuba, as well as stage performances and dance productions like Traces or the world-famous Béjart Ballet Lausanne. Added to this are musicals such as the English-language production of Disney’s The Lion King. His latest success is the German original production of BODYGUARD – DAS MUSICAL which premiered in the Musical Dome Cologne in November 2015. Beforehand he had already been involved in the original production of the musical in London’s West End by British producers Michael Harrison and David Ian. In April 2016 he recorded another big success in Paris with the Cuban musical Carmen la Cubana, co-produced with the renowned Théâtre du Châtelet.

Successes like these are not just an expression of Ralf Kokemüller’s passion for first class stage events, they are also a powerful confirmation of his understanding of live entertainment as a “people's business”, as a business area in which – looking beyond the solid contractual and financial management – personal contact and mutual trust are absolutely essential and indispensable conditions for long-term collaboration.

This understanding of the human factor allows Ralf Kokemüller today to lead an increasing number of highly competent and passionately committed staff, the most important capital of BB Group alongside a long tradition with a portfolio of high-quality productions and an extensive international network of artists and producers all over the world.

Innovative projects, such as the cuban productions Ballet Revolución or the recent adaptation of the original CATS show as a theater tent production in German language, which could extend the Group’s portfolio into new areas, all testify to Ralf’s undiminished desire to try out new things.

As Ralf Kokemüller leads the BB Group combining innovative spirit with long experience, the agency succeeds in its ambitious goal to always deliver top-quality groundbreaking live entertainment. Let us enjoy the thrill!

Michael BrennerFounder, Producer and Impresario (†)

One singular sensation
Every little step he takes.
One thrilling combination
Every move that he makes.
One smile and suddenly nobody else will do;
You know you'll never be lonely with you know who.
“One” from the musical A Chorus Line

As in the plot of the world-famous revue production of the Broadway classic A Chorus Line, which Michael Brenner brought to the German stage in an award-winning original production for the first time in 1987 – the year that BB Promotion was founded – in a similar manner he made his first steps with the most celebrated dancer of the twentieth century, Rudolf Nureyev, and the core of the ballet elite, and in the same twinkle of the eye and a generously charming nonchalance, presenting three open-air concerts with the magnificent rock icon Tina Turner.

By no means a newcomer to the entertainment industry, this event was the only accolade missing in his success record. This success was only outweighed by the personal triumph of bringing an unforgettable experience to an enthusiastic audience every evening. The path was predetermined: to achieve in an unprecedented way high artistic quality combined with financial success, a solid foundation for the BB Group, an agency operating in the international top league.

His pure passion for emotive, immersive entertainment theatre, coupled with an unerring instinct for what has style and originality on stage as well as his open admiration for fascinating artists fuelled the tireless engine that motivated Michael Brenner to take risks.

In order to establish upscale live entertainment at an appropriate level for the longer run, it was also necessary that adequate theatres and venues were available. Already in 1988, Michael Brenner won acclaim hosting the 1st Summer Festival in Cologne with the European premiere of the celebrated US production of Evita at the newly built Philharmonic Theatre. The festival, which always boasts highlights from the world dance and show business scene, evolved far beyond the region and quickly became a magnet for audiences, celebrating its 25th jubilee in 2012.

The fact that across the country the golden gates of the most prestigious theatres, opera, concert and festival halls crowned by jewels such as the Staatsoper Unter den Linden, the Dresdner Semperoper or the Hamburg Staatsoper were now open for extended guest productions by BB Promotion is ultimately due to Michael Brenner’s long-cherished dream and his personal merit, merging successfully the demands of high culture with those of sophisticated live entertainment, thus reconciling two phenomenally different genres. With this the entire industry was given the inexorable momentum to expand further in this market which opened up brand new dimensions.

Michael Brenner was first and foremost a visionary entrepreneur. His unfaltering credo was to offer a spectrum of all stripes, trendy but never banal and never picking material up arbitrarily. The same quality criteria that he had set for his precious team as benchmarks for the success of an ever-growing and expanding business applied also to him personally. Considering his vast and diverse portfolio and each and every one of his productions they were all a unique artistic achievement, whether new productions, premiering on a German stage or an international hit at some of the most prestigious theatres in capitals such as London, Paris, Vienna, New York, Tokyo or Sydney, whether newly discovered or brand new productions developed from scratch.

A top producer of successful long-standing musicals such as Grease, Saturday Night
Fever, Chicago and We Will Rock You, Michael Brenner was at the same time inspired by an irrepressible joy at discovering innovative show formats and led him for instance to market an exceptional performance by STOMP or to establish and produce the Harlem Gospel Singers. Thus he delighted audiences with numerous shows from all cultures around the world, each unique in itself, under the seal of BB Promotion.

The inspiration and major source of Michael Brenner’s creative enthusiasm were his numerous encounters with wonderful artists such as, to name but a few, Gospel star Queen Esther Marrow, incomparable Marcel Marceau, ballet icons Mikhail Baryshnikov and Rudolf Nureyev, the rock giants QUEEN with Brian May and Roger Taylor or the charismatic Judith Jamison and, not least, his extraordinary friendship with his mentor Paul Szilard, the great dance producer and impresario. Kindred spirit, as Michael Brenner shared his enthusiasm for the universal language of dance and the ballet world, Paul Szilard played a decisive role in Brenner’s continuous audacity to bring celebrated dance companies such as the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater or the Martha Graham Dance Company to Europe and to impress a wider audience. And there are more than a few dance companies of international standing that boast to have been under the aegis of Michael Brenner, proud to have entrusted him as their impresario.

That artistic intuition, technical know-how and the courage to invest in international touring business produces diamonds can be gauged by first-class productions such as Richard O’Brien’s Rocky Horror Show or and the award-winning West Side Story with performances in the best theatres in Europe, Asia and Australia and sold-out shows in Israel: expensive, electrifying productions put together by carefully selected creative teams guarantee the wholehearted approval of critics and audiences alike. This is proved by guest appearances, for example, at London’s Sadler’s Wells or at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris where West Side Story in the original choreography of Jerome Robbins reached the top against all competition, including the highly subsidized musical theatre or the market-leading musical entertainment.

As a leading promoter of major concerts in South-West Germany, Michael Brenner’s agency presented among others Bob Dylan, The Eagles, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, Queen, Sting, The Rolling Stones and many more.

Under Michael Brenner’s leadership, BB Group, with 100 staff and its headquarters in Mannheim, became one of the leading companies in the high-quality live entertainment sector. This is the life work of a visionary.
