About the project

“The Unheard Things” tells of the unheard and the unheard-of: it is about looted art and everyday objects from former Jewish property in the region. At various weekly markets in Altaussee and Bad Aussee, the audience can watch and listen to four women as they make a radio programme in the hustle and bustle of the market, focusing on the stories that can be linked to these objects. In between, they sing beautifully. The Theater im Bahnhof is working with two academics who are creating the scientific basis for this unusual theatre work and publishing their research in a kind of memory play.

The theatrical radio programme takes place from 10:00 – 14:00 on each day of the event. You can linger, listen to the stories and songs, watch the radio makers at work, try out the memory game, i.e. come and go at any time.
