A performative installation by Andreas Hutter based on two texts by Heiner Müller
Two unique texts by Heiner Müller formed the basis for this work by stage director Andreas Hutter and actress Evelyn Fuchs:
the never-before-staged, visionary manifesto Brief an Mitko Gotscheff [Letter to Mitko Gotscheff] and an intimate piece of
writing entitled Traumtext [Dream Text] will now be receiving their first Viennese performances at MAK NITE. It will also
be the première appearance of Andreas Hutters series of pictures The Face in the Sand, which will accompany the staging specifically for this occasion.
Brief an Mitko Gotscheff (1983) and Traumtext (1995) are exemplary representations of Müllers life, writings and dreams. They tell of yearning and of failure, of the vision of societal
solidarity and of bitter personal experiences. These texts present versions are based on the original typescripts by
Heiner Müller as they were published by him in the program booklet Drucksache 17 during his tenure as artistic director of
the Berliner Ensemble. Integrated into this printing are handwritten corrections and notes made by the author as he edited
the material he had written.
