Mister Jemineh is a lucky fellow. While they have lunch he tells Misses Jemineh his adventurous journey through everyday life that led him into her arms. Although unforeseen events happen all the time, he is always lucky. One wondrous incident follows the next. He blunders, but even so he is fortunate enough to find a threatre ticket. How can you be lucky in life and what is bad luck?
Two dancers, two musicians and a children's ensemble bring Mister Jemineh's lucky journey to life.

Selection of press clippings
"How to stage a children's book about everything only just lucky, how to tell a funny story with dance, performance, theatre and music while being a bit philosophical, that is what Bert Gstettner (Tanz*Hotel) shows in "Herr Jemineh hat Glück" at Dschungel Wien. (...)
The "dance theatre with live music" (including a sparing use of beautifully spoken text) has been developed for children but adults will enjoy it likewise.
The excellent original text and the perfect professional and creative realization result in a masterpiece, thanks to the commitment and effort of all people involved. Truly! Expressed without any pathos."
