The woods come to town: For the voestalpine Klangwolke 2015, director Hubert Lepka and his company Lawine Torrèn (AT) have taken their inspiration from Aldabert Stifter’s romantic tale “Hochwald.” The forest is the chief protagonist in both the original and Joey Wimplinger’s new text version. For Stifter, the woods still constituted a secure place of refuge for two young women during a time of troubles and war, whereas the current production scrutinizes the forest’s future prospects as a “natural landscape.”
