In this o94 MUSIK-SPEZIAL we will talk about „Frail Affinities“, a multi-part work by the collective Saint Genet. The six-day performance premieres at this years donaufestival in Krems.
We open the show with a live-performance of the Prelude of Frail Affinities and talk about the development of the piece and learn more about the story behind:
„The 72-hour performance-installation in April last year, which involved a procession from an abandoned factory in Traiskirchen to the centre of Vienna, is the seed for Ryan Mitchell’s new migration tragedy, which will be presented at donaufestival.“ (donaufestival program 2016)
