The Battle for the South Pole

A musical lecture

The Battle for the South pole

Actor Wanja Mues reads Stefan Zweig's short story about the fateful expedition of Englishman Robert F. Scott to the South Pole in 1912, supplemented by his own diary entries. Markus Horn and Stephan Braun set a soundtrack between jazz, film music and avant-garde to the dramatic events, accompanied by projected original photos of the expedition.

„This is much more than a “reading to music”, it breaks down the boundaries between radio play and melodrama.“
- Rhein Zeitung, March 2019
