Books and events

It is part travel writing, part musings about theatre and life.
The reader will visit: Taipei, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Moscow, Beijing, Jakarta, Bangkok, HongKong and many more.

The writing is evocative, lively, thought provoking and captivating. The reader is taken on a journey through time, place and imagination and it is a pleasure to follow Matschoss in his travels. The book is a feast of sensory detail which makes the reader feel that she or he is right there with the writer. The combination of information about the places visited, the personal reflections on theatre and the sensory descriptions keep the reader interested and turning page after page. (Martha Lovette )



Joachim Matschoss displays a true traveler’s eye for what most other people are too busy to notice.
Geoff Page

Matschoss is a man whose world is a stage – and the people on it are his muses, his inspirations. The reader travels with the writer guided by the perception and clarity of the writing.
