A broken dream - The making of "Das ADHS"
This is the story of a robots life.
It was born in an old Saline in Hallein Austria…
“Robot! Unfreeze all motor function!”
Its first steps…
Dancing always was its passion…
… but its parents wouldn’t let it live its dream…. it should attend a carreer as a Robo-Sumo-Fighter like its father and its grandmother did (they all were really bad at it and didn’t earn much fame obviously!)
So it came that one day “Das ADHS” had enough….
…after a while (it must have been a year or two) it managed to get itself together and did what it always should have done: It became a stage dancer with a famous rock band.
