North of Düsseldorf, carnival is regarded with a mixture of astonishment and disdain. In the south of the republic, on the other hand, the fifth season is inscribed in red in the calendar. At the Fastnachtsmuseum in Kitzingen, Bavaria, everything revolves around carnival and its various regional manifestations.
For its reopening in 2013, we used modern technology to bring the history of Fasching, Fastnacht and carnival to life in an audio-visual production. We have conceived a show in which the twelve most important figures, their historical costumes and different dialects are integrated into a narrative and emotional spatial experience and brought to life with projections. On the multi-layered, room-high gauze strips, there is an interplay between the atmospherically illuminated original costumes and their wearers brought to life through projections. Figures such as Federhannes, the Villinger Narro or the Spalter Flecklasmo enter into a fictitious, surreal dialogue with each other and argue about the sense and nonsense of the carnival season, masquerades and the forgiveness of sins.
