30th anniversary of „Totales Theater“

Exactly 30 years ago I founded „Totales Theater“, Austrias first Fringe Opera Company. After having created this necessity, the city administration of Vienna founded a budget for Fringe Opera.

Since then, many wonderful artists began to work in this city, creating a vibrant and innovative opera scene.

With our opera company „Totales Theater“ and later „Schlüterwerke“ we created a countless number of various productions in the most exciting venues, drawing a young and curious audience.

16.9.2017, „Marcel Marceau“
Hans Arp Museum, Remagen, BRD

For the 50th anniversary of the Jean Arp Museum in Remagen/Germany I will mime again - for the first time since decades. It is a big honour to play Marcel Marceau himself. He was one of the founders of this museum, together with Martha Agerich and other artists. They performed happenings in the abandoned railway station of Remagen and Jean Arp, who visited them, was highly impressed and donated half of his works to the small museum - which now grew to be one of the biggest in Germany.

Together with a special guest, we muse about the past, the present and the future...the utopistic and the naked truth.
