The Danube is the second largest stream in Europe, and the only big European river flowing from west to east. Having its source-rivers Brigach and Breg in the Black Forest in the southwest of Germany, it flows after 2850 km into the Black Sea, passing Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova and Ukraine.
Before Nato bombed Serbia in spring 1999, thus destroying two bridges in Novi Sad, the Danube was one of the most important shipping routes in Europe. It was a lively connection between different cultures and political systems, between East and West, Europe and Minor Asia. The remnants of the bridges are still not removed from the water, and they are blocking the traffic on the river. Now, in 2003, the economy along the Danube slowly starts to recover, but trade still is not really „flowing“. Communication is disrupted.
The Danube Streaming Show intents to make an artistic contribution to the revival of communication and exchange along the Danube. Therefore, a team of women artists is travelling by ship from Vienna to the Black Sea, exploring which ways of transport, are still possible.
But even more important, W.A.S. wants to connect with artists in all these countries, to learn about their work,
and their points of view regarding their own homeland:
Performance on Tour
Historical background is the story of „Frederic Mistral“, a historic steam ship, which was used by emperor
Franz Joseph incognito for his private Danube-trips. During the Second World War it served as swimming
commando-center for the partisan leader and later chief Tito. The actual owner Franz Scheriau discovered
the ship some years ago in Romania, and brought it back from there to Vienna with the tug „Josef“.
