Part II: Black Sea Washing Machine (metamorphosis)

MIASMA – the production collective around author, director, and actor Bastian Wilplinger, which is also behind The-Merz-World-New-Construction by The Eel House – first caught public attention with their large-scale theatrical vision “Call for Reduction! (in effigie)”, staged in summer 2012 at the former Ankerbrotfabrik in Vienna. The story of Marie Müller and her attempts of self-assertion against the constraints of a psychotic society manifested as an intermedial happening with more than 70 participating artists from very diverse genres. A stunning installation provided the framework for the theatrical aspect of the performance and its realisation with various media. A number of HD cameras and the latest streaming technologies were employed to edit the images live and broadcast them online in real time. Now, Marie Müller’s battle for a new world forges ahead at donaufestival and in the World Wide Web! It all starts out during the Crimean War, with the beginnings of the bourgeoisie and modernism, and ends with dementia and the new construction of the world from its own debris. The performance can be experienced either in the form of a bourgeois soirée at Stadtsaal, as an actionist open-air event at a still to be disclosed location, or else via www.donaufestival.at! In all cases, neither the performers nor the organisers assume liability for any damages to the visitors’ clothes, psyche, or body!

*Parallel start times at Stadtsaal and the outdoor event: the open-air location will be announced on www.donaufestival.at.
