Chester Mueller


Sad news.

Our Great Chester Mueller has passed away

He was our manager from 1997 to 2005
We were saying over and over again:
Dear Lord, please send us a manager.
So he entered our lives.

With him and his right-hand Karla Reinartz we were able to dive deep into pure creativity.

He covered our backs:
registered DEREVO as a company
insurances, taxes, permissions, contracts, applications, visa
basic financial aid from the city (institutionelle Förderung)..

Our Creative Bases have become possible through him
First the Laboratory and then, from 2003 till now, the studio in the Festspielhaus Hellerau.

We don’t know what happened.
We know that we miss him.

Anton Adasinsky / DEREVO
