Chris and his wife Mateja I got to know as they stayed in on of our apartments for the time they are in Vienna. Well and I took the chance to interview him how the life is working on a Christmas Market in winter and on music festivals in summer. And what he is doing in the time in between.
I got to know Lisa some time ago during a performance of her cabaret program Ehrengrab and was enthusiastic about her from the start. Because the program is very special, as it combines two things that are very contradictory to our culture: laughter and death. If you then add the Viennese unfriendliness, then something very special and profoundly Viennese results out of this.
