(EINE) WINTERREISE is a dialogue between Schubert's work and contemporary experiences of confinement. A meeting point between the stage, musical aesthetics and closed environments (carceral and psychiatric). A journey through a blank landscape where bodies and voices seek to inscribe themselves.

About the Project

(EINE) WINTERREISE grew out of workshops held in Belgian prisons by Sarah Théry, and the desire felt by some detainees to re-visit the classical repertoire from their own perspective: create bridges between librettos and their own lives, and insert their own electro music word within the acoustic classical music.

Through out a 2 years journey, leading them in 3 countries, 4 penitenciary units and 2 psychiatric hospitals, the COLLECTIF MEUTE proposes a large scale scenic project with more than a 100 participants.

(EINE) WINTERREISE is an innovative choral rendering of one of the piece that resonnated the most with the participants, Schubert's Winterreise.

By setting up a dialogue between Schubert's composition and amplified improvised music and by confronting Wilhelm Müller's text with contemporary experiences of confinement, an new dramatugy emerges. A dramaturgy that takes into consideration today's societal challenges and mobilise the various dimensions of opera: music,narrative/libretto, stage direction, scenography, costumes, lighting...

On stage, five musicians interpret this choral re-composition. Between classical and contemporary music, this object-performance of 1½ hours duration incorporates the audio testimonies and compositions of the participants.

By means of an immersive stage production devised by Claire Pasquier and the visual artist Joanie Lemercier, the public will be both spectator and participator in what happens on stage: the mental and physical confinement of a narrator caught in an infinite loop of past and present.

(EINE) WINTERREISE is committed to an artistic practice which seeks to expand its public while drawing it into the creation process. This involves collaborating, co-creating and composing together at every stage.

(EINE) WINTERREISE gives power back to the participants, inviting them to co-create, co-construct and collaborate on a total art work (Gesamtkunstwerk) which will echo their reality.

Restoring a voice to people who, through their confinement, are left out of the public debate

(EINE) WINTERREISE is a dialogue between the stage and secure institutions, both psychiatric and carceral. It proposes a programme of creation and collaboration with inmates and patients through the creation of a contemporary dramaturgy of confinement; a parallel version of the narrator's wanderings. The standard progression through workshop, rehearsal and performance is jettisoned in favour of a meshing of trajectories.

Returning the power of creation to people rendered fragile by their experiences

A creative voyage for people with disabilities, racialised people, and those living in precarity, all of whom find themselves under confinement or semi-confinement, at the margins of society. To grasp the specifics of the milieu, the artists work at the same location for several weeks at a time.The aim is to build confidence with the participants so that the co-creation can unfold within a closed environment.

Collaborating with the partners throughout the creation

The creative itinerary is designed together with the partner institutions -the psychiatric units and penitentiary centres. Their specialised knowledge and familiarity with the participants make it possible to tailor the programme to the specific conditions. The professional staff from these institutions will be invited to participate in the workshops, opening up transformative spaces in the carer/patient and guard/detainee relationships. This participation will underwrite the long-term cohesion between their institutions and the local cultural actors and institutions.

Why should you support us?

(EINE) WINTERREISE is a large scale project, running in 3 european countries for more than a 100 participants. It creates bridges between many actors of our society, and bring down physical and social walls. It builds a complex ecosystem of partners, from cultural, education, medical and social worlds. It is an innovative project, both on the technical perspective (use of video mapping and lazer lights, as well as a immersive sound system) and on the creation perspective (new creation methods).

This is a very ambitious projet carried by a young and rather small compagny, the COLLECTIF MEUTE, who works on art projects which aim is to give back the creation power to all citizens. In this creation, each euro is going to be meaningfull, and will be a tourning point in the creation journey.

If you donate to (EINE) WINTERREISE, this will mean we will be able to offer a more complete creation experience to the participants.

By reaching 1000€ we will be able to record every participants on a very high level by bying a very light sound system that we will transport in the carceral and psychiatric facilties.

Reaching 2000€ will enable us to carry out 4 more days of workshops in a carceral or psychiatric facility, unableing a new group of participants to take part in the project.

Reaching out 3000€ will enable us to propose a livestream of the premiere in the partner institutions. It would permit the participants to follow the premiere of the show they created.

With 5000€ we will organize a full (EINE) WINTERREISE performance in a facility, with the full sound and light system, so that the participants could live out the full show.

7000€ means we will be able to construct an artistic object specifically dedicated to the participants, in a film form that reconstruct the full creative journey they have participated in.

Who are we?

Led by the COLLECTIF MEUTE, the team for (EINE) WINTERREISE is pluridisciplinary. It blends artists with producers, researchers, cultural actors specialising in audience development, and socio-educational instructors; all of whom, from the inception of the project, co-construct the content and its implementation.

The diversity of partners makes it possible to co-construct a coherent project adapted to the localities and the people encountered there.Through the partnership with the University of Lille, an in-depth analysis can be made of the practices and impacts of the project.

The artistic team itself is a coalition of different skills and influences drawn from a range of milieux. The graphic and visual artist Joanie Lemercier, the lyrical compagnie COLLECTIF MEUTE (Claire Pasquier,Sarah Théry), the chamber musician Christia Hudziy and the innovative electronic music group Pompéi (Gilles Mortiaux, Karim Gharbi, Quentin Manfroy). Each in their own way, these artists question the modalities of production, the interactions and hierarchies inherent to creation in music and the performing arts.

Originating from a range of different countries - Belgium, Tunisia, Ukraine, England and France, amongst others - all of these artists have developed their own individual working methods. Separately and together, they are determined to take account of the social dynamics of today's world and to reserve a prominent place within their teams for women and members of the LGBTQI community, who are still too often absent from decision-making committees.

The artists are equally committed to the principle of sustainable development. The Opéra de Lille, co-producer of the project, was the first French opera house to be awarded the international ISO 20121 certificate in recognition of its environmental and social practices. This sense of civil responsibility is of primary importance to Joanie Lemercier, who campaigns for an environmentally sensitive approach to be adopted in the digital and virtual arts.
