The piece is inspired of Unica Zürn's "Hexentexte". The texts are anagrams. That means that every line of the poem has exactly the same letters mixed to different words. This creates an extraordinary strange flow of words, sometimes connecting to pictures and metaphors, sometimes loosing all coherence. Unica Zürn suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and wrote these poems between her psychotic episodes. "Zirkel" tries to show the process into the psychosis but is in the same way a ritual for someone who tries to deal with this mental state and uses it to expand his or hers consciousness.
