The Mozart Project
About the Production
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.
