CIRCLES – Community between game and exentieller experience

Musik: Neue Vocalsolisten | Mit Werken von Huihui Cheng, Georges Aperghis, Hannes Seidl u.a.


In a time in which many young artists* are turning away from high culture and virtuosity, leaving temples of muses, despising the artificial and questioning traditional forms of reception, in which the visual gesture is put on an equal footing with musical ones, reality is transformed into artistic material and every performance is medially charged, the challenge for a top vocal ensemble and the role of its members is also changing: they are becoming a projection screen, a medium, representatives of reality.
