Dantons Tod was a joint project of the Zimmertheater Rottweil in cooperation with the music university Trossingen, the Jazzfest Rottweil e.V. and the Erich-Hauser-Gewerbeschule Rottweil. The project was made possible by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts with funds from the newly founded Innovation Fund for Art.
I was doing the play's stage design, sound design and impersonated the role of the "machinist of the revolution", the man behind Robespierre and his political system during the French Revolution's "Reign of Terror". The play took place inside a gigantic interactive sound installation, where a 5x8 meter steel wall was used as a loudspeaker, 3 mobile loudspeaker-sculptures interacted with the actors and a 10-channel loudspeaker setup surrounded the audience.
