Born in Dresden, 1961. Grandad a certified ne’er-do-well. Grandma makes every shopping trip an adventure. Five years in São Paulo with mum and dad. They had their own system. Thanks. Apprenticed as an industrial manager: I’m not stamping all five hundred of these effing dockets. I’d rather be a grave digger. A job requiring no previous knowledge. Main thing no more offices. Kathrin is at the theatre already. Perfect working hours. But unless I’ve done military service they won’t let me near drama school. So Christmas 1984 it’s the German embassy in Prague. Emigration. But straight back in for the carnival and for love. And straight back out. Lucky break.
