Show 198: OUT OF SPACE-war of the worlds

Live-Radio-Drama on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Orson Welles’ interpretation of H.G. Wells’ novel War of the Worlds on Oct 30th 1938.

Lange Beschreibung A scenic reading, electroacoustic performance, incl. live-streaming and live terrestrial broadcasting.

„When it comes to radio and audio we are much closer to the
subliminal text of our society.
Literature and audio open up a new reception onto the
vestiges of the accelerated world.“
Lale Rodgarkia-Dara

On Oct 30th 2008 Christine Ehardt (academic part) and Lale Rodgarkia-Dara (artistic part) organised a new production of war of the worlds based on the novell by H.G.Wells at the Planetarium in Vienna.

Within four weeks more then 20 artists (electroacoustic musicians, actors and visualists) joined the production, including live-streams from Cologne and three radiostations took over the live-stream and included the live-drama in their programme.

Radio walks towards its original immediacy.
