Composer in Residence at the 2012 Salzburg Mozart Week
In addition to several performances of works by Mark Andre, the festival programme will feature a very special world premiere: his choreographic concert, gefaltet (working title), will be the opener to the 2012 Mozart Week on 27 January. Mark Andre and renowned choreographer, Sasha Waltz, will develop a scenic concept in collaboration with musicians and dancers. Music and dance will be brought together to create a project "beyond the conventional hierarchies of artists and works" (Sasha Waltz). The music will be made up of passages and fragments from works by Mozart and Andre, and even the instrumentalists will be involved as actors, players and dancers. Mark Andres and Sasha Waltzs intention is to develop an alternative to the conventional concert format.
