Blickfelder Festival


Discovering Zurich in an audio-video walk

Kollektiv HIATUS (CH/DE)

A tablet in your hands, and action! You see Nico looking for something - what is it? You follow him on his path and at the next station, you discover Stefanie's home. She's writing in her diary and you listen to her through the headphones. Two streets down, you discover something strange with Bianca. Then, standing on the bridge, looking out, you see the city and its inhabitants through Auri's eyes. You hear music that only children can hear and understand.

These four children give us insight into their thoughts, wishes, and desires. And you accompany them, step by step, into a parallel world, behind the visible. Throughout this city walk, each of the four children forges a bond with something that others cannot otherwise perceive.

In the past months, the HIATUS production team has become artistic accomplices of Auris, Bianca, Nicodème, and Stephanie. Eagerly, all of them are now looking forward to curious eyes, ears, and feet.
