Description Concert description: Fritz Grünbaum (1880–1941), a native of Brno, was one of the most famous European cabaret performers in his time. He wrote texts for hits and decadent operettas. Little did he know that he would become a victim of the greatest failure of human society. Similarly, Erwin Schullhof, Robert Stolz, Jean Gilbert, Erich Wolfgang Korngold or Pavel Haas, whose works we decided to present with arrangements by contemporary authors, had no idea either. September 1923, the writer Ladislav Fuks (1923–1994) would have lived to be one hundred years old, who in his extraordinary work depicted the greatest horrors of the world in his lifetime with painful and cynical exaggeration. His bizarre and decadent poetics, full of the fantastic and phantasmagorical, inspired us to conceive a very strange cabaret, in which joy and casual entertainment reek of the tragedy of the well-known future fates of actors and actresses. The title refers to the 1953 short story The Laurel Wreath, in which Fuchs describes how people are destroyed by humiliation and condemnation from self-proclaimed leaders and winners. Life is a dog was sung by Hugo Haas to the music of his brother Pavle.
