About Christopher Hütmannsberger
No matter if Christoph Hütmannsberger is on stage as a poet, lyricicist, rapper or with his jazz combo, his performances are united through their clout. There is this voice, rcognizable under hundreds; something broken in his stage presence, reminding of young Bukowski. And there are the texts which are not afraid of being pathetic, because they rule the pathos. They are able to communicate everything without drifting away into kitsch.
Conoisseurs will find many references to masters of English word art at many places: Beckett, Shakespeare, Aesop Rock. All others stay with Hütmannsberger’s performance, illustrous like a concert, powerful like a cinematic epos and charismatically infectious.
