European cost-cutters target culture

Posted on Art4Development, originally from The Times - The Australian


ARMIN Rohde is breathless. Not from his fencing lesson -- preparation for a stage performance of Cyrano de Bergerac -- but out of anger.

"What is happening to our cultural landscape?" fumes the 55-year-old, one of Germany's best-known character actors.

"Europe was different . . . exactly because we had theatres in every town, the best art collections, a sense of history and performance. And now what? We're shutting it all down to save the equivalent of a kid's pocket money!"
