Walter Benjamin: A Radiowalk

A treasure-hunt based format in a production inspired by Walter Benjamins writings.


The collaboration of our team member and artistic director Pavlica Bajsic Brazzoduro and AAU_CRESSON / ENSAG project partner started at the winter school in Grenoble where she presented her research and the Radiowalk, a new format created by merging of a soundwalk and a theatre performance. Due to COVID restrictions this participation and presentation were only possible because they took place online. But it also intensified the communication and collaboration between the project partners RadioTeatra and AAU_CRESSON / ENSAG.

It resulted in September 2021 in Portbou, a small port on the border of France and Spain, where Pavlica Bajsic Brazzoduro presented an artistic production in memory of Walter Benjamin who died there running away from the Nazis. It is a radiowalk format dedicated to him and his writings for radio and for children. In its form, a radiowalk is based on the children’s treasure hunt and is therefore inspired by children and their responses and Benjamin´s writings for children are thematically very intriguing for this format.
