Elena Uhlig & Fritz Karl, Zyklus KAMMERSTÜCKE


Splendid small-scale theatre

MuTh presents a new subscription cycle: “Kammerstücke”. In this selection of programmes, we see some of our most popular performers on stage in small-scale productions. Here, closer to the audience, they can bring greater intensity to bear as they show what they are capable of, reveal what moves them, and tell their stories. Elena Uhlig and Fritz Karl explore the madness of living together, in all its bizarre and humorous facets. Karl Markovics bravely dives into the world of wine bars and taverns, and spills the beans on eating, drinking and misbehaving. Sona MacDonald and Johannes Krisch play Marlene Dietrich and Ernest Hemingway, in a hitherto little-known little-known tale of unfulfilled love. Frank Hoffmann reads Alessandro Baricco’s tale “Novecento”. Baricco’s story, set on an ocean liner, is delivered here as a dramatic monologue with musical accompaniment. And the reading, singing and piano playing of Michael Dangl, Pablo Cameselle and Andrea Linsbauer convince us that there is nowhere else where lemons taste as sweet as they do in Italy!

  In the TV series “Babylon Berlin”, Karl Markovics plays an Austrian journalist whose character’s personality has something in common with the subjects of the stories he recounts this evening. StorIes which tell how life can finish us off before the proper time has arrived. It’s all about eating and drinking ... “Restaurants provide an opportunity for landlords to play the host, guests to place their orders, and waiters to eat”, noted Karl Kraus. Markovics serves up literary offerings from Alfred Polgar, Josef Roth, Anton Kuh, Friedrich Torberg, Kraus and others – plenty to delight the palate and bring a smile to our faces. The Oberösterreichischen Concert-Schrammeln ensemble provide the musical accompaniment, dispensing a fine selection of tasty nibbles — a long way from the usual Heurige fare.

What are the links that bind lovers forever? What is it that separates them over time? Marlene Dietrich and Ernest Hemingway formed a little-known yet very intense relationship, a connection which endured until his death by suicide. Sona MacDonald and Johannes Krisch trace the story of the eccentric writer, his wife Martha Gellhorn, and his beloved correspondent Marlene Dietrich. Sona MacDonald brings back to life legendary performers such as Billie Holiday, Lotte Lenya and Marlene Dietrich. Johannes Krisch specialises in strong character roles on film and stage, most recently in the highly successful film “Der Trafikant”. Christian Frank takes care of the music. A highly-charged production featuring three outstanding artists.

The “hero” of the story is a foundling child, who is discovered as an infant on an ocean liner and raised on board by an engine room stoker. His name comes from the year in which he was found: Novecento (= 1900). The adolescent Novecento discovers a piano in the ship’s ballroom, and teaches himself to play it - perfectly. He comes to the attention of piano player Jelly Roll Morton, the King of Ragtime, a man not known for his modesty. Morton invites him to a Ragtime piano competition. We won’t reveal exactly how that turns out. But Novecento will never leave the ship. At least that’s how the Italian author scripted this marvellous story with its tragic ending. Alessandro Baricco’s drama has proved to be a lucky find, indeed an absolute gift for the talents of actor Frank Hoffmann and his musician friends. Please note: It is now intended to hold a memorial for Frank Hofmann with some of his friends and colleagues on the evening scheduled for this event. More information will be provided at a later date.

„…im Land wo die Zitronen blühn!“ (.. in the country where the lemon-trees flower!). There’s no doubt this means Italy, that longed-for land of the south. A programme of music and literature which places Mediterranean flair and Italian joie de vivre front and centre. Actor, Italy-lover, and author Michael Dangl reads from his book “Orangen für Dostojewski” (Oranges for Dostoevsky) and from his “Hymnus an den Süden” (Hymn to the South). Music is provided by the tenor Pablo Cameselle and pianist Andrea Linsbauer. Performing classics by Liszt and Mendelssohn, they show that, even in the 19th century, Italy was often celebrated in song as a travel destination. The programme also includes works such as familiar Neapolitan canzoni by Tosti and Leoncavallo, as well as well-known hits from the 20s, such as “Torna a Surriento!” and “Non ti scordar di me!”, both written by Ernesto De Curtis
