The birth of curiosity

Dear friends and companions,


After more than two years of research and writing I proudly present my book about theatre, Commedia dell'Arte and my work, illustrated by Linde Waber, who produced these drawings especially for this book.

It is called

The birth of curiosity out of the spirit of revolution - the Commedia dell'Arte as political popular theatre

You can order it right now at Amazon or directly at the editor and you will receive it before christmas.

The official presentation will take place on 12. January 2014 at 3 pm at the "Theatermuseum", Lobkowitzplatz 2, 1010 Vienna.

Linde Waber will exhibit her drawings,  o.Univ. Prof. Dr. Peter Roessler of the "Max Reinhardt Seminar" will talk with me about theatre, Renald Deppe will play clarinet, Anita and Hans Nittnaus will serve wine from their win-yards and I will present masques of the Commedia by Amleto Sartori and Carlo Setti.

I thank everybody who supported me writing this book, especially Lydia Mischkulnig, Dr. Dinah Marin-Surkes and Johanna Jonasch, as well as my lector Andreas Deppe, Mag. Sabine Kruse and Mag. Thomas Stauffer of facultas.

I hope to meet you at this occasion and wish you meanwhile pleasant and peaceful holidays and a very happy new year

Markus Kupferblum
