Press Reviews

22. July 2011

The most sustainable moments are contributed ... by Reinhold Schinwald who was able to produce sounds in the quality pf "foreign body" by performing an amazing monotonously chanted child-murderers monologue . One likes to shout out: Carry on!

Salzburger Nachrichten (Karl Harb)

The most impressive experiences after the break have been offered by the literary-oriented works. [...] Reinhold Schinwald's compelling work "foreign body", a harrowing material.
