Linz. News comes from actor Roland Düringer: On November 15 at 8pm, Gasoline Brother, Wutbürger and the nation's home builder will present their new, thirteenth, solo program: Africa Twinis at the Linz Posthof.
Advice: Is it possible that with the story of two motorcycle-friendly friends, they draw old fans to the fuel cells back into the audience?
Düringer: Petrol Brothers was at a time when you couldn't get past Mr Düringer, because I was everywhere. Now I play a piece, this is not a cabaret program, it is not thigh humor. This is an exciting, moving story of failure, much like Hinterholz 8. It was not a funny story either. If you were building the house yourself, then after the movie you wondered if you really wanted to do it to you.
Advice: The brother with the gasoline in her back is still a constant …
Düringer: It doesn't burden me, I think it's just ridiculous. It's all so long ago. Three things hover over my face as an umbrella term: Petrol Brother, Lord Breitfuss and Wutbürger. But I am an actor who writes pieces by himself and conjures up stories in numbers.
Advice: Twinis story sounds like a crisis for cyclists?
Düringer: The story is about two younger friends from Waldviertel – a risk manager who has no idea about risk and a resilience coach who knows how to react when risk becomes reality. The two of them tried to make their way to Dakarâ & # x20AC; & # x2122; The motorcycles with the screws failed. Thirty years later they try again. People over 50, preferably men suddenly panic that they will not experience certain things. They seek adventure and want, when the children are out of the home and the marriage is already divorced, to prove something they have always wanted to do at a young age.
Advice: Sounds like a mirror?
Düringer: Yes, there is also social critique inside, I have a feeling that we are connected to systems. They would supposedly make our lives easier. And in reality, but in the incredible force of addiction. Example: A smartphone always helps us. But what if the battery is empty, then everything is gone. No navigation, nothing more. And that's the point. What about a system-infected society when the plug is pulled at some point? How then do people react and then we are in an awkward situation. Specifically in module mode. And when panic ensues, there is no more sober, rational action.
Advice: How do you manage to get out of the system?
Düringer: I've been built so much since my school days that I thought, what are they doing around me? So I grabbed a job. For me, when I was 14, we were allowed to do music classes, the last hour before witnessing, the music we loved to hear. At that time, tapes were still being recorded. 90 percent brought with them what has always been toned down from every radio hole. And I brought Deep Purple with me, everyone else was terrified. And so I've always worked: I've always fucked them with my taste in music, and that's through my life to this day. (laughs) And I'm still wondering, why are they doing this? But the good thing is: you get a lot of freedom when you're where no one else is. An example of motorcycling: There are mostly our German neighbors of motorcycle tickets, also in the Nawis. It shows particularly beautiful roads through Austria. And if Herr Düringer sees something like that, then he certainly doesn't drive there. Because I know what's out there, it's not a nice road, there are Dutch campers, mountain bikers, hundreds of motorcyclists tackling a fat BMW, and there is a traffic jam because everyone is driving there. That's what my system is. It is a way out of behavior, namely, pedaling and mimicking things. That is the point, of course, in the piece. Not really directly to regret it, but it will be remembered anyway.
Advice: I liked that one of the two friends was a "risk manager" at a bank who "had no idea about real risk"
Düringer: These are two different types. One was with a foreign legion of security services in world history. And he claims in the story that he was eventually the Resilience coach in the Swiss army. They are the ones who prepare the people on duty, and if something bad happens, they prepare them for how to handle it. This is unlike a risk manager who thinks of paper, which could be anything but has no idea what he is actually doing when something happens. Resilience means you keep working, that's the hardest thing. That difference between one who thinks he can plan a motorcycle trip through the desert on a paper with Excel spreadsheets, and one who says it doesn't matter what you plan because if we have a problem in the desert, your brain goes into a modular brain and then there are only more attacks. escape or the dead. What they are not at all about are motorcycles.
Advice: What is it about?
Düringer: Motorcycles are just a means to an end: it still happens, but it's not a thing. For me, it's two important things: People my age, preferably men suddenly panic that they will no longer experience certain things and then panic because they still want to have a great adventure. To prove something else. What they always wanted to do at a young age. Then there were needs like getting married, having children, paying off the loan, then getting the children out of the house, already divorced, and then thinking: now I could finally do what I always wanted to do. It is one component, but then you are often in a physical state that things that were still fine at the age of 20 suddenly disappear. That's one thing. That means you have to do a lukewarm version of what you wanted to do then.
Advice: You also now turn to "In my age, in my generation" more often, how is your current life?
Düringer: I'm fine, you just have to say, well, I'm 56, certain things are going, certain things are no longer working. That's just the way it is. This generation, I'm a vintage 63er. It is an extraordinary generation that he is experiencing, it is always getting better, that he has more opportunities, more and more wealth. But this is also a generation that makes sure their next-generation behavior is not so good. We are the generation that has actually succeeded in affecting the entire planet, but the generation that cannot bear the consequences. We managed to let go of the money, but we don't have to bear the consequences.
Advice: You have twice been awarded the Audi Romy Award, where is she at your place?
Düringer: I don't have that anymore, I gave it to someone. Things like this don't interest Düringer at all. If you see how show business works, then you know it's nonsense. What matters to me is direct feedback from the audience when I experience it directly. Like yesterday in Linz, where I played before the Lions. People who otherwise just can't do much with me are immersed in my story. It's happening to people right now, that's why I'm doing what I'm doing.
Advice: Do you have a mid-life crisis at your disposal?
Düringer: It doesn't exist with me. I don’t have a condition for my age, but I do have my condition. I know exactly what's going on, what's wrong, what's left. What I can't do is maybe 10 years ago, motorcycling at 195mph, because then I was logged out for three days, and I don't need that anymore. This can act like a young man. It also hurts me to fall off my bike a lot more than when I was 16 years old. When I was 16, he knocked you over three times, threw you away and picked you up again and looked only at home. Now it's an easy slip of an ounce. And it was like that. Mobility goes down, you need more rest. It has nothing to do with the midlife crisis. It is a condition that must be accepted. And this is again so, because once given, it works against this age: There are anti-aging powders, concepts, what you need to eat, hair coloring, at one point the surgeon comes and has to cut off where there is too much and there must be retention. You try to maintain a claim that has nothing to do with what is real.
