Radio star Gernot Kulis is touring Austria.
"Kulisionen" is the celebrated comedian’s first one-man stage programme. Its title plays with the German term for collisions (Kollisionen) and his surname. Kulis’ fan base has risen strongly in past years thanks to various regular comedy features on market-leading radio station Ö3.
Kulis (www.gernotkulis.at) is one of the country’s best voice imitators. This talent hurled the entertainer on top of the Austrian album and single charts. Several of his "Callboy" and "Professor Kaiser" CDs reached the top 10.
The Amadeus Award laureate teamed up with voice-imitating colleagues Peter Moizi, Herbert Haider, Christian Schwab and Marion Petric to form the Comedy Hirten some years ago. The group performed their programmes "Mörderisch" and "Ferngestört" to sold-out crowds across the country.
Now Kulis is succeeding with his first one-man programme. The popular comedian recently decided to add some dates to the current Austrian tour to meet strong public demand. "Kulisionen" deals with everyday madness from grinning sharks to stolen mobiles.
Kulis will perform at the Stadtsaal in Vienna several times in the coming months. Thomas Stipsits & Manuel Rubey, Maschek and Gunkl will hit the Stadtsaal stage as well. Go to www.stadtsaal.com or call +43 1 909 22 44 for tickets and more information.
Vienna’s museums are also offering first-class entertainment. Several galleries – including the Museum of Art (Kunsthistorisches Museum, KHM, www.khm.at) and the Leopold Museum (www.leopoldmuseum.org) – are currently focusing on Gustav Klimt. The Fin de Siecle art trailblazer’s birthday occurred 150 years ago. Klimt died in 1918.
An excellent special exhibition portraying one of Austria’s most renowned contemporary artists is on at the Bank Austria (BA) Kunstforum. Around 60 paintings by neo-expressionist Herbert Brandl, most of them extraordinarily large pieces of art, are on display at the gallery. Especially Brandl’s monumental mountain paintings have a long-lasting impact on the beholder (www.bankaustria-kunstforum.at).
The MAK (Museum für angewandte Kunst; www.mak.at) is drawing the crowds with interesting photographic collections documenting architecture of the 20th and 21st century. "Erschaute Bauten" (Envisioning Buildings) examines photographers’ approach to modern architecture. The exhibit features images taken at villas, neat back gardens, city centres and the housing estates of the working class in Naples, Italy.
