The coffee-machine shines. The coffee flows. Kaffee! Women sitting down. Gossiping. Klatsch! Kaffeeklatsch. A theatre piece with dance, acrobatics and coffee.

The term „Kaffeeklatsch“, meaning gossiping at coffee, has its origins in the 1. half of th 19th century. In those days, women weren't allowed into public cafés, and so they started to consquently meet in their own houselhods, where they drank coffee and talked. The men started calling this new custom Kaffeeklatsch.

„Ei! wie schmeckt der Coffee süße,
Lieblicher als tausend Küsse,
Milder als Muskatenwein.
Coffee, Coffee muß ich haben,
Und wenn jemand mich will laben,A když mě chce někdo potěšit,
Ach, so schenkt mir Coffee ein!“
J. S. Bach, Kaffeekantate BWV 211

„Ah! How sweet the cofee’s taste is,
Sweeter then a thousand kisses,
Milder then sweet muscatel.
Coffee, coffee I must have it,
And if someone wants to treat me,
Ah, my cup with coffee fill!“

J. S. Bach, Kaffeekantate BWV 211
