This artpiece by Manuela Hartel is part of a Videoloop series from the video installation “WINTER” for the theatre adaptation of WINTERREISE by Franz Schubert. A theatre production of the Micro Opera Munich with Cornelia Melián, Premiere 2017, Theater HochX, Munich.

The highly topical issues of displacement, flight and migration of peoples during the 2015/2016 wave of refugees were taken up in this staging. The video loop series LEIERMANN describes the hiker between the worlds, guardians of timelessness, but also the “caller in the desert,” who wants us back to the natural order of our transient life. The figure in the video is completely shrouded, wrapped in rescue foil as if in a veil whose costume could have both practical, cultural and religious reasons. The figure seems to move swaying and teetering without ever getting anywhere.
