For this artist talk, the loyal Social Democrat Gertrud Nesterval would probably even have skipped the the march on May 1st. Members of Nesterval and interested persons from all over Austria and Europe form a virtual meeting and talk about The Kreisky Test, Gertrud Nesterval’s story and the special requirements of an online production. With every performance of Nesterval’s immersive and interactive project, a small social utopia always emerges from the joint work of artists and the audience – now even online and internationally. In the spirit of the International Workers' Day, nothing more needs to be said than “Friendship!”

The artist will be in English.
The use of the free video conference app Zoom is a prerequisite for being able to take part in the artist talk. A computer or laptop with a camera and microphone is required.
For the first time, a Nesterval production takes place entirely online - but as usual, it's immersive and interactive. Participants will be connected and connected to the actors at home on their laptop or computer to become part of The Kreisky-Test.
Some experiments are forgotten - perhaps rightly so. But the Nesterval Fund for Charitable Purposes is always ready to support family members in their projects, no matter how absurd and revolutionary. For the first time, a Nesterval production takes place entirely online - but as usual, immersively and interactively. Participants and actor will be connected with each other at home on their laptop or computer to become part of The Kreisky-Test. But who will be the chosen ones and what are they chosen for?
Nesterval's cast includes performers, drag artists, amateur and professional actors, who outline the history of the Nesterval family in various constellations. In a mix of classic gaming and immersive theatre, Herr Finnland and his team create performance adventures that turn their participants into actors in the play, authorised to determine what happens next. The Village (2018), Nesterval’s co-production with brut, was nominated for the 2019 Nestroy Special Award.
