    Georg Kaser was born in Brixen, Italy, on 31 December 1953. He took over his father’s sign and decorative painting business, but from early childhood theatre and acting were his greatest passion. One day, while walking his hometown with his girlfriend, Georg decided to found a theatre group. The group called itself ‘Kulisse’ and staged the occasional theatre productions, but soon Georg began dreaming of a full-blown theatre and cabaret ensemble. The location he had in mind was an ancient wine cellar in the oldest part of Brixen, his home town. With the help of his friends Georg transformed the cellar into a theatre called ‘Gruppe Dekadenz’. The ‘Gruppe Dekadenz’ proved a great success, hosting cabaret shows and plays as well as music and various guest performances. The difficulties Georg encountered while juggling both theatre work and his business led him to concentrate on the world of theatre. Following his true passion Georg attended workshops in acting, commedia dell’arte and directing. His talent as an actor, his extraordinary craftsmanship and his dedication to fine dining render Georg an exception in the South Tyrolean theatre landscape. His career would not have been possible without the continuous support of his wife Annelies. Their grown-up children Miriam, Philipp and Max have been following the family tradition by becoming actors and musicians.
