No Weapon Formed Against Me Shall Prosper is a performative action within a stage setting extended by a large videoprojection. Live editable footage is projected on 5 satellite dishes and 2 performing artists merging the whole setting into one image. The performance is scanning our reception and transmission ranges as well as defence and protection mechanisms. It is a live research of receiving and transmitting images and organic sounds using electronic instruments and voice. The projected imagery becomes an extension of the space and seems to emerge from the viewers inner perspective, making Manuela Hartel (Video, Performance, Voice) and Lorenz Schuster (Live-Electronics, Performance, Sound) appear “as coming from another planet” as the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung described the performance in February 2016 at the premiere at UNPAINTED lab 3.0 in Munich.
