On the second night of  m20d14 , Dante’s Inferno, the first part of Dante Alighieri’s epic poem Divine Comedy was staged as a walk-through an alpine winter forest. Designed as theatre play in which instead of the actors, the audience have taken on the dynamic part. Guided by Virgil the audience journeyed from condemnation to condemnation, where it was confronted with contemporary hellish figures. Natural as well as technical features of the landscape served as architecture and decor for the individual stations. Trees turned into prison poles, drainage pipes into anvils and rocks into fortresses. lasting approximately one hour, the peaceful forest turned into hell, where unsuspecting visitors witnessed the depths of the human soul.
