Resetarits is at the ready again

One of Austria’s most renowned spoken word artists has presented his latest programme while a Dutch bluesman tours the country.

"Un Ruhe Stand", which plays with the German term for retirement (Ruhestand), is the 24th stage programme of Lukas Resetarits. In it, the celebrated entertainer and actor tries to find out whether the complaints of today’s young generation and the anger of the elderly are justified. He has a close eye on the crisis and how politicians reacted to it.

Resetarits, who is about to turn 65, said in a recent interview: "I feel a great sense of uneasiness in me but I am unable to tell you what exactly caused it because it is so immense."

Referring to occurrences on the global stock markets, the "Kottan ermittelt: Rien ne va plus" star said that "all of this gambling has nothing to do with doing business".

Resetarits presented his first one-man show in 1977. He starred in a string of acclaimed films like "Freispiel" directed by Harald Sicheritz and Schwarzfahrer from 1997. However, the stage star is best known for his role in satirical crime series "Kottan ermittelt".

Resetarits will perform "Un Ruhe Stand" in theatres across the country in the coming months. Visit www.knowme.at for ticket information and an overview of all the dates.

Meanwhile, the European tour of Hans Theessink is in full flow. The Vienna-based blues singer and guitarist – who was born in the Netherlands – is due to entertain his fans in Belgium, Denmark and Germany in the next weeks before heading to England and Scotland to play some concerts there. However, his touring schedule also features several shows in Austria.

Late Austrian singer Georg Danzer revealed in his introductory words for "Big Bill’s Guitar", a new book about the award-winning musician by Dietmar Hoscher, the he had always been fascinated by Theessink’s "dark and calm voice" and his ability "to create something new by performing old songs."

Theessink – who shared the stage with stars like Knud Moller and Terry Evans – has an extraordinary ability to make all of his concert nights memorable. Speaking to the Austrian Times about his hopes and fears, Theessink said: "I do sometimes think about the possibility (of losing my creative edge one day). I have no idea whether I would accept it, but so far, it has not happened. There is always something that inspires me."
