DSCHUNGEL WIEN MODERN
For the sixth year, Wien Modern and DSCHUNGEL WIEN, Theatre for Young Audiences, are staging their own festival of innovative music theatre and performance projects for all ages, from the tiniest audience members to those of us who have never grown up.\r\n
The Seal Woman\'s Child opens the series with a fairy tale from the far north. A quintet of musicians and actors tell the hauntingly beautiful story of the lonely Inuit, the singing seal woman and her son Oruk. In a skilful and mischievous re-telling of Grimm\'s fairy tale The Fisher and his Wife, the Graz-based theatre troupe mundwerk and LaStrada, with music by Rainer Binder-Krieglstein, offer a contemporary parable about the dangers of greed. In a new work by Hans Tschiritsch and Tania Golden called The Bremen Town Musicians, used, everyday objects are transformed into wondrous and spectacular \"instruments\". It will be interactive performance where children can try out the new musical instruments for themselves. A House full of Music is a STELLA09 prize-winning production by Vienna\'s Pocket Opera which explores the notions of «noise» and «music». And the Belgian production Bramborry invites audience members aged two and up to play with sounds and colour: three saxophone players set out on a magical journey through the artworks of Czech artist Kveta Pacovská.
