Europeans on stage
Transcript of Europeans on stage
Welcome to our fantastic show through Europe!
Neuer: Hi my name is Manuel Neuer.
Nice to meet you.
Goethe: Good morning!
I am called Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
Neuer: When were you born, Mr Goethe?
Goethe: I was born on August 28th, 1749, in the handsome town called Freistadt Frankfurt.
And you Mr Neuer?
Neuer: [Wow he is very old] Oh, I was born on 27 March 1986.
And what do you do?
Goethe: What I do?
Neuer: I mean professionally! How do you earn your money?
Goethe: [Does he not know who I am?]
Alright. My works are known worldwide. I write books.)
May I ask the same question?
Neuer: I'm a football player!
Goethe: Football player? (16)
Neuer: Yes. A football player.
[Maybe he doesn’t know this]
Someone tries to shoot a ball into a square net …and… Someone tries to catch
the ball in the net.
Goethe: Well, that is unknown to me.
That sounds so strange. (22)
Neuer: What do you do in your free time? (23)
Goethe: Free time? (24)
Do you mean the time after work? (25)
Neuer: Yeah, correct.
Goethe: I…like to travel around the world.
I traveled all over Italy. I was in Venice, Milan, Rome and Naples and many more.
And what do you consider doing in your "free time"?
Neuer: I live for my wife and for football. (29)
Do you know that it is easier to travel through Europe today than in your time? (30)
Thanks to the "Schengen Agreement". (31)
It was an agreement in the year 1985. (32)
Thanks to this we can travel without problems and also share goods with other countries. (33)
Goethe: This sounds interesting. (34)
I wish that this would have been possible in my time. (35)
But talking about free-time and pleasure … (36)
Goethe: In my time, I was very popular with the ladies. "Here I am human, here I can be." (37)
I was engaged with Lili Schönemann. (38)
But then, I married my wonderful beloved Christiane von Goethe. (39) With her I got a wonderful son called August. To my regret she died 10 years later. (40)
Neuer: Well ... Yes ... my condolences. Well ... so many women ... I do not know what to say. I think I'll remain faithful.
Goethe: "We have enough time if we only use it right." (42)
Neuer: Well ... (43)
Yes ... a very nice statement. (44)
Goethe: Right? "Where justice becomes unjust, resistance becomes a duty." (45)
Neuer: Another quote from you? (46)
Goethe: Doubtless. (47)
Neuer: Okay. (48)
Nice. Thanks for the interesting conversation. It was nice to meet you.(49)
Goethe: Oh, you're welcome. Nice to meet you. (50)
Dirk: Hello, are you the world famous physicist Albert Einstein?
Albert: Hello. Yes, that’s me. Who are you?
Dirk: My name is Dirk Bach, I´m a Comedian on RTL, I moderated the Jungle camp, do you know it?
Albert: No, I’m sorry. I don’t know it. Can you explain it to me?
Dirk: Of course. In the Jungle camp there are 11 people, more precisely 11 stars, eleven people who have together more debts than Greece. It's about survival in the jungle.
Albert: Do these shows make sense?
Dirk: Of course not, they are senseless. But people find them entertaining. The candidates get tasks, but I won´t describe them in detail because they are very disgusting.
Albert: Imagination is more important than knowledge, because knowledge is limited.
Dirk: Sometimes, they are not even imaginative. They have to eat spiders, worms and ants.
Albert: So, it’s true what I have always said: “Two things are infinite, the universe and the human stupidity, but I’m not sure of the universe.”
Dirk: I think "One can avoid a lot of harm, if one can laugh about oneself. Comedy can do lots of things, if it doesn't pursue a bad aims."
Albert: Ah, human aims. "I'm not sure, is with what weapons World War III fought, but World War IV will fight them with sticks and stones."
Dirk: I´ve always been a funny guy and I think people should laugh more. I consider a lot of things funny that others might find inappropriate. " But I know my limits.
Albert: "There are no great discoveries and advances, while there is still an unhappy child on earth."
Dirk: All people are important. That's why I support homosexual that have diseases such as HIV and AIDS."
Albert: As I say: "Keep away from negative people. They have a problem to every solution".
Dirk: Yes, that’s right.What do you think of our present times in Europe?
Albert: At present more people want to live in Europe than people who want to leave. At the time I emigrated to the USA. At the time it was the right decision. "It is easier to split a nucleus than to get rid of a prejuidice."
Dirk: I – as a homosexual – can confirm this experience.
Albert: Anyway, "you don't have to understand you just have to get along."
Dirk: Thank you. It was interesting to talk to you!
Albert: And keep in mind: "The only enemy of humankind are his negative thoughts".
And now, we have pleasure in welcoming two German celebrities that - at first sight - could not be more different.
Heidi Klum – German top model, actress and advertising icon.
Friedrich Schiller – German poet, philosopher and historian .
Can you tell us something about your private life?
Heidi: Well, I have 4 children and varying partners.
Schiller: So have I – but with my beloved wife Charlotte.
So, there is something that you have in common.
Who of you is more famous?
Heidi: You can see me in any magazine. People know who I am and admire me.
Schiller: Well, there are places, streets, schools named after me. Everyone still knows my name. And that although I died 250 years ago.
How do you explain your popularity:
Heidi: I know what people like: They like seeing beautiful women! Yet to be pretty is not enough. As I told a young girl once: "Nice face, long legs – that's not enough"!. Modelling is an art of its own. Every photo sells a dream!.
Schiller: Oh, yes "People talk and dream a lof – usually of better times. "
Is it easy to create the perfect piece of art?
Heidi: A normal photo shoot goes as follows: "„Ja. Nice. Very good, Heidi, stay. Amazing, stay. Heidi, yes. Ganz genau so. Beautiful. Perfect. Stop.“ You need a lof discipline.
Schiller: As I say: "The early practice make the master". But yet, you also need freedom. In this context I may mention that the modern "Schiller-collar" was named after me. It is more casual and gives more freedom to men.
Heidi: Excuse me, but I think I know more about fashion than you. Anyway, you need someone who inspires you to be free."
Schiller: "Man is born free – even if he wore some chains."
Heidi: You also need to have some fun. I love my job, because I have to do different things all the time.
Schiller: I fully agree: "Change is the salt in any soup".
In Europe, one of the burning issues is about its future. Do you believe in European values?
Schiller: What is the majority? The concept is nonsense. Only a few are in the possession of a right mind.
Heidi: Well, I am typical German: I do what I say!
I would like to come back to our show "Spot on: Europeans on stage": What do you think about "make up", "costumes" and "playing roles"
Heidi: Well, I have just supported children in need through my campaign "Go out without make up".
Schiller: “ Human beings only play where they are human in the full meaning of the word, and they are only fully human where they play. ”
It seems to me that we have actually talked with two very modern Europeans. Thank you very much!!!
Garrett: Hi Ludwig
Beethoven: Good morning David!
Beethoven: I hear that you were playing compositions of mine, I suppose they are not in the charts!
Garrett: That's right. However, there are a lot of people who like classical music, they respect your masterpieces.
Beethoven: A lot of people do not know that our European anthem was composed by me!
Garrett: But that is just a question of marketing: You have to show that classical music is still up-to-date. I do that by wearing a modern outfit: I wear leather trousers, a white shirt and my long, blond hair is tied together. Women find that sexy.
Beethoven: O.k., you prefer a casual outfit. But what do you think about accuracy?
Garrett: I always say “talent helps, but only work brings you to the final aim”. What about you?
Beethoven: I see it in a similar way. “You must not consider your compositions divine. There is always room for improvement”. What do you do, if no inspiration comes to your mind?
Garrett: “You have to look for something that is good and something which has not existed so far – so after yourself”. Can you give me a piece of advice?
Beethoven: “Look into the beautiful nature and find comfort there.”
Garrett: Nature? What about our human achievements? We have created a unified Europe. But at present a lot of people from different countries are coming to us. We have a lot of problems, because they are from different cultural backgrounds.
Beethoven: "Art unites the world, true artists even more." I would recommend
that "poets should be considered the foremost teachers or a nation." The same applies to Europe.
Garrett: Interesting theory.
