Program sheet

For this evening, students of the Elfriede Ott Drama Academy, which has been active at Palais Fanto for more than 10 years, together with the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, have embarked on a journey to Arnold Schönberg, his early role model Antonín Dvořák and his student Anton Webern. Words and sounds, stage and sound art become one in the joint performance. Texts set to music by Arnold Schönberg come into contact with new music in an unexpected way. The focus is on the experience with all senses, which awaits the actors and the audience on this adventurous journey.

Stream on facebook and YouTube.
