Mozart’s classics receive a contemporary facelift through Stephen Mills' The Mozart Project, which honors Mozart's classical genius in the traditional sense, while gradually melding his masterpieces into a contemporary exploration of sound, movement, and visual art. The production celebrates the composer's traditional works while exploring how his music inspires artists and audiences today. The ballet features three movements--Echo Boom, Though the Earth Gives Way and Wolftanzt--all blending Artistic Director Mills’ signature, contemporary movement style. Additionally, the work features three musical luminaries collaborating on two of Mozart’s most beloved works. World-renowned electronic and experimental musician and artist Paul D. Miller/DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid joins forces with Dr. Michelle Schumann (Austin Chamber Music Center) and critically acclaimed composer Graham Reynolds in a collaboration produced to transcend the imagination. The Mozart Project electrifies audiences through its use of technology to deliver a classical art form mixed with new media.
