SAVAGE OR WHEN DARKIE BECAME DARLIE

tells the story of a tooth paste brand, established in Shanghai in 1933 and sold throughout Southeast Asia. Originally named Darkie, the brand changed its name to Darlie in 1985. As part of its appearance, Darlie embraced a logo in homage of Al Jolson, the actor and singer dubbed the “The World’s Greatest Entertainer” in the early 20th century. Jolson, who has also been remarked as "the king of blackface“, still decorates the packaging of Darlie’s tooth paste today. On the occasion of the Performance and the weekly Discounterbar, a special drink has been created and will be served during the evening. Props of the performance will be exhibited at the Palace glass display on the lower floor.
