a historical diversion of the river danube


in the floating transition from day to night on september 3rd, for roughly one hour, history was literally "made". at the visualized linzer klangwolke, lawine torrèn presented an experiment – the historical deviation on the occation of the austrian state’s anniversary. what would have happend if in 1955 the treaty had not been signed and instead a division like in germany had taken place ? division at banks was conceived as a sensually comprehensible music and open-air theatre. precision, poetry, original scene and montage were playing a vital role.
