Andreas Weis was a young brewmaster that lived on the Carlsberg ground, back in 1880. At the time, the brewery stood miles outside town, far away from any kind of entertainment. So, Andreas and a chemist called Kjeldhal, both Carlsberg employees with a passion for art and literature, founded Kwims, a small but very active theatre company. The company also included some bohemian artists who used to live in the Carlsberg area, namely Frans Schwartz and Søren Ludvig Tuxen. A great addition, especially when it came to designing the posters for their shows.
