5 May 2018 - a night to remember. On this special night over 2.000 people in Vienna celebrated the world as it should be. Colourful and barrier-free! It was a night full of verve and respect for human diversity.
This year's motto was "Your time is now”. The entire Kursalon became a time machine, which guided the guests from the 20ies until now.

"Terror" at Kammerspiele Vienna

"Terror" by Ferdinand von Schirach
directed by Julian Pölsler

Fighter pilot, Major Lara Koch, has shot down a plane that has been hijacked by a terrorist. The plane is heading for a stadium of 70,000 people. Koch’s pragmatic decision – one in which she breaks constitutional law – is to end the lives of 164 people on the plane rather than allow the terrorist to slaughter a far greater number. At the end, the audience must vote: guilty or not guilty.
The cast is exceptional chosen - all characters are placed by women.

Definitely a must see!

 

cast:
Julia Stemberger (judge)
Pauline Knof (Lara Koch, defendant)
Martina Stilp-Scheifinger (Biegler, defence)
Susa Meyer (Neslon, prosecutor)
Alexandra Krismer (Christine Lauterbach)
Silvia Meisterle (Franziska Meiser)
Gioia Osthoff (staff sergeant)

"A Difficult Man" (Der Schwierige) at Theater in der Josefstadt in Vienna

"A Difficult Man" by Hugo von Hofmannsthal (1920)
directed by Janusz Kica
premiere on 6 October 2016 at josefstadt theatre in Vienna - don't miss it!

 

"A Difficult Man" is light-hearted, comic and thought-provoking. Its central character, the Count Hans Karl Buehl, is "the difficult man," both seeking and running away from love, caught between action and inaction and forever undecided. The play questions the value of words in true expression and the nature of communication in society - the misunderstandings that ensue are a pleasure to behold.

cast:
Michael Dangl (Hans Karl Buehl)
Ulli Maier (Crescence, his sister)
Matthias Franz Stein (Stani, her son)
Alma Hasun (Helene Altenwyl)
Michael König (Altenwyl)
Pauline Knof (Antoinette Hechingen)
Roman Schmelzer (Hechingen)
Christian Nickel (Neuhoff)
Alexandra Krismer (Edine, Antoinettes Freundin)
Therese Lohner (Agathe, chamber maid)
Wojo van Brouwer (Neugebauer, secretary)
Alexander Strobele (Lukas, first butler at Hans Karl)
Oliver Rosskopf (Vinzenz, a new butler)
Christian Futterknecht (a renowned person)
Alexander Strobele (Wenzel, butler at Altenwyl)

"Monsieur Claude and his Daughters" (Monsieur Claude und seine Töchter)
A conservative French father, Claude Verneuil, with four lovely daughters, is forced to adjust to three sons-in-law of varying ethnic backgrounds: Jewish, Muslim and Chinese. Hope remains with the youngest daughter, who may yet offer them a big church wedding. A wish that comes true, except for the fact that the man she is about to marry is from… the Ivory Coast!
