Main Program

The Shine of Day / Tizza Covi, Rainer Frimmel

Phillip Hochmair is a young, successful actor with engagements at big theaters in Vienna and Hamburg. His life is marked by learning new texts by heart, rehearsals, and performances, to the point that he gradually begins losing contact with the reality of everyday life. Only when he meets wandering Walter, with whom he establishes an ambiguous friendship, and also faces his neighbor Victor’s destiny, does he remember that life is not just a stage.
