With the help of small changes in the costume one can distinguish three different “Heinrichs” during the play
First Heinrich is confused and really thirsty. He even doesn’t recognize his wife. The fact that Heinrich doesn’t wear a shirt but is full of mud emphasizes this crazy state.
Clear in Mind Heinrich
After Klara (his wife) gives him something to drink, Heinrich gets a clear head. He puts his wide sleeved shirt on which supports his sweeping gestures.
During the play Heinrich gets greedy for a short moment. He has stolen some gold and doesn’t want to live ascetic anymore. This characteristic is expressed by a big fur coat. His posture changes also.
Back to the Roots Heinrich
At the end Heinrich is poor and hungry again. Because he is also wet his shirt is full of mud now. He looks pretty depressingly.
