ANSTATT - a radioplay

by Barbara Huber & Lea Promaja
produced autumn 2014
broadcasted in the radia network spring 2015


Anstatt tells a story happening in Vienna. It explores the different
ways to live and experience one city. Two characters narrate one day in
Vienna and their narratives mix throughout the piece until it seems we
are dealing with one person.
The piece additionally highlights Vienna as a third character
represented in the piece thanks to field recordings and as the place of
the narrative itself : it echoes with the content of the character's
impressions throughout their day. Anstatt is an attempt to propose a
meeting : what we imagine about Vienna, and what Vienna is about, people
and confronting majestic Vienna with other identities, more down to earth.

Anstatt is non-fiction turned into fiction : it has been co-written by
Barbara Huber (AT) and Léa Promaja (FR). Written in English and German,
the text is based on the author's personal experience and relation to
