In a cross-disciplinary performance, singers, performers and musicians set off on a journey of discovery to explore Schubert’s treasure-trove of songs in the here and now. They do so using not only their voices, but their entire repertoire of feelings and movements. In between the opposing poles of intimacy and escape, between past and present, they evolve new forms of interpretation and thus find their own very individual and modern approach to the music of the past.

Winterreise – Vorstudie für ein nomadisches Leben / A Preliminary Study for a Nomadic Life
The »Institut für angewandtes Halbwissen« (Institute for Superficial Knowledge) sets out with Franz Schubert’s »Winterreise« on their lips and a rucksack full of home-made electronic instruments. In a world full of boundaries, their adaptation of the song cycle gives new topicality to the motifs friendship, mobility and longing.
