A German backpacker, who fell for a man 39 years her senior while she was travelling around Australia, has opened up about their age gap relationship Katja King, 38, who now lives in Hobart, Tasmania, met her now-husband Kevin, 77, at a caravan park when she was 27 years old.
The pair are now parents to a son, Pierre, six.'I remember the first time I saw [Kevin] like it was yesterday,' Katja said.
The free show, scheduled for June 17 and 18, is only open to over-18s and described on the Dark Mofo website as 'a bloody, sacrificial ritual performed by the patriarch of Viennese Actionism, his devoted disciples and an orchestra.' It adds that it contains 'distressing imagery, nudity and strong adult themes, and is not suitable for children.'Lord Mayor Sue Hickey is one of the signatories of the petition calling for the show to be cancelled, the ABC reports.'I don't think it should be allowed to proceed, I find it offensive on so many levels and I do think it's something that crosses what I would consider public decency,' she said.'I don't know when art ceases to be art and when it crosses that line and becomes something really perverse, but I think we're very close to that mark now.'She said that she was voicing her opposition as mayor and not commenting for the council.
However, she added that she would ask the council to consider its options and ask Premier Will Hodgman to intervene as the Dark Mofo event receives .5million in government funding.
Kevin, who had young daughters himself, explained he had been running a restaurant previously and had suffered a heart attack.
'But despite his argument, the Animal Liberation Tasmania set up the petition calling for the show to be cancelled.'We are opposed to this event, which trivialises the slaughter of animals for human usage, and condemns a sentient being to death in the pursuit of artistic endeavours,' the group wrote.When you enter Level 3, hang up your towel on one of the hooks provided. Our Black Out events are outrageously sexy and adventurous as you find your way and hot sexy men in the darkened areas of Level 3.We would say “see you there” but it’s dark so we won’t see you, rather “feel you” …David Walsh, the millionaire founder of MONA, has defended an upcoming performance that features the blood of a slaughtered animal by saying the controversy is good for Tasmania's economy.Hermann Nitsch is set to direct a three-hour performance at the Dark Mofo festival in June that's described as a 'bloody, sacrificial ritual.'The 78-year-old Austrian artist is known for using blood, carcasses and entrails in his work – and has assured the animal in the performance will be killed humanely before the show.
