At 10 a.m., Olaf Stoy, painter, graphic artist, ceramist and author, will read from his story "In the Rain", which was published in 2013.
Dresden in autumn. On the banks of the Elbe, directly opposite the Ministry of Finance, a dead man is found. He holds a bar of soap in his hand. Further strange details lead Chief Inspector Moser and his assistant Tröger into the circles of the sect "Noah's Children". Pensioners believing in reincarnation, recalcitrant painters, an emergency landing plane, blocked bridges, a sudden hearing loss and much more hinder the investigators in their work. And when even a flood completely overrides the exercise of service, everyone goes their own way.
Life in a state of disaster sets new priorities. But it is precisely these changed circumstances that mean that the case can ultimately be solved. Until then, however, the protagonists of this bizarre story get their feet wet, in the truest sense of the word.
11.30 a.m. embark on a tour of Mikio's mountains "With porcelain in your backpack"
Talk & reading with Mikio Yoshijima (author) from Meissen's Japanese twin city Arita; Robert Horst (Japan expert) and Kay Leonhardt; Artist & Chairman of the Friendship Society Meissen-Arita/Japan e.V.
At 1 p.m., Anja Hell, Managing Director of the Meissen Porcelain Foundation, takes us to Vienna.
With "Herr Mozart wacht auf" begins a divine fun, astonishing and tragicomic, a game with times and identities.
A man who only remembers having been on his deathbed the night before as Wolfgang Amadé Mozart wakes up in a bizarre environment: music without orchestra, carriages without horses, light without candles. Has he awoken to hell in the courtyard or arrived in paradise, and above all: with what mission?
