Relive the story of Frederick, Count of Tyrol, and his escape across Ötztal Valley in the unique production by “lawine torrén” – in which actors and audience walk from scene-to-scene.
More than 600 years ago, in the year 1416, Duke Frederick IV crossed Ötztal Valley with a small entourage. Performed on eight days in September 2020, the interactive, walking theater production of “Friedl of the Empty Pockets” is based upon this story, tracing Frederick’s escape across Ötztal Valley. Leaving Vent in the morning, actors dressed of the times and the audience will walk from scene-to-scene on their way to Marzell Glacier. The unique walking theater production by “lawine torrén”, a local artist’s network, takes cast and audience through the pristine wilderness of Ötztal Valley.
During the course of this intriguing experience, the audience will walk across Niederes Tal Valley to Martin-Busch-Hut. The 19.5 kilometer long trek includes 700 meters of elevation gain. The walk back to Vent takes some two hours to complete.
