Everything gone well last friday. Chaosium was split, women where on stage, having a talk, some lipstick, a HukuLele. Men where on the professional audience stage, looking at the show and sometimes reading their CarsMagazine.

The Guest have time to speak and presented their ideas and works, but the conversation didn’t really explose between them, Ellen managed well to keep going in with questions, and time runs very fast! We didn’t have enough minutes to speak about all the subjetcs…

Anyway the final was a dialogue between women and men just before the Vinyl blows his sound into Ständehaus and people start to dance toghether!

See you soon,
