A musical act by Christoph Bochdansky and die Strottern

Two lovers are walking through the night (but aren’t we all lovers and don’t we all take walks at night?) Everybody walks for themselves, and fate has hem meet in this particular night. But then, fate does not care about them anymore and they lose each other. The melancholy and longing are dancing a waltz and whoever sees them silently sheds a tear or two, because it is kind of beautiful to become sentimental. Heaven helps, hell as well, figures as bold as brass, they all make fun of humans’ mortality. He, who cannot laugh about life – even if it makes you cry from time to time – is a fool.

A little story about the greatest that can happen to us: love.
