OH, DU SÜßES MENSCHENFLESCH!

(OH, SWEET HUMAN FLESH!)

The Viennese Theater zum Himmel (Theatre to Heaven), housed in the Hörbigerhaus, is also a friend of the otherwise deserted summer literary scene. Among other things, it will present the intriguing letter exchange between Arthur Schnitzler und Adele Sandrock in form of a dramatic reading by Maresa Hörbiger and Joseph Lorenz suggestively entitled “Oh, sweet human flesh!”

KEINEN SENIORENTELLER!

(NO BOOKCLUB FOR ME!)

Growing old is a highly disregarded attribute to possess by modern values. The elderly are redundant, shunned from social participation, and even laughed at by their younger counterparts. But there is more than wasteland that is left to a person after a certain age, at least that’s what British journalist and book author Virginia Ironside believes.

Her 2007 novel “No! I don’t want to join a bookclub. The diary of Marie Sharp” is a semi-autobiographical documentation of the benefits of old age, most recently set in stage by Austrian director Uli Brée. The performance of Chris Lohner – suspiciously jolly and naturally convincing is bound to make you feel young, regardless of your age.
