The pedestrian zone in front of the Kunsthalle Munich: There, a homeless person appears in the midst of lustfully shopping, well dressed people. In the hopelessness of her existence, she transfigures everything ordinary into art. Sounds from her memory fit into an orchestration of the urban sound space. Everything she hears becomes a global song in which, like Wagner’s Isolde, she finds redemption through death and resurrection in love.

Similar to Viola and Katharina, the audience sits in the entrance area of the Kunsthalle after closing time, with a view through the glass panes onto the pedestrian zone. With the help of transducers, the windows become a sounding membrane that connects the inside with the outside.
