Hymne

Mutig in die neuen Zeiten
(Courageous in the new times)

Performance - 2019

Dressed in black boots, a black strapless suit, a chain around my shoulders and a perm, I step out from behind the audience at the farewell party for Rector Reinhard Kannonier and come to a stand on the stage. I sing the first stanza of the Austrian national anthem with an intuitively made up melody that contains elements of Arabic music and Alpine yodelling backwards. Then I go back the same way without bowing.
