Corpora in coeli harmonia styriarte residency
Dance as medial energy between spiritual guidance, old-fashioned Catholic rituals and the audience: since the new millenium at the latest has experienced enthusiastic growth and new understanding in the context of European church liturgy, too – by clerical growth, especially from the “Third World”.
In this way new ways of seeing, hearing and perceiving are opened up in the spiritual experience of central European ecclesiastical ceremonies.
The remit of TAW’s Artists in Residency in the monastery at St. Lambrecht consisted in formulating a music/dance score for the monastery cloisters: Haydn, Hauer, Cage and Boulez.
