Mozart had to deal with the problem of being an ordinary person and at the same time an extremely sensitive musician. Was it difficult to accept himself? Did he frighten himself when he realised his extraordinary talent? Was his humour helpful in accepting himself? In the search for answers to these questions, many themes can be discerned that can be symbolic and meaningful for any generation and at any time.
Mozart in minor meets Archive
In two open workshop phases, students from the Department of Scenography and teachers from the Mozarteum University met with employees of the Red Bull Media House to examine and explore sounds in a minor key by W. A. Mozart and the fascinating visual worlds of the Red Bull Media House film and image archive.

Extreme contrasts and surprising similarities, images and sounds were mapped onto each other in transformational processes. The approaches of this research started a creative process with an intentionally open outcome: the Great Fair meets dangerous descents, the Lacrimosa meets an energy drink from a can, discussions meet interpretations, emotions meet visions.
