The biography of Anna Plochl is the starting point of this music theatre project that reflects on displacement and the “top” and “bottom” of society.
Drawing on the biography of Anna Plochl, the morganatic wife of Archduke John of Austria, the music theatre project “::Anna::” explores the historically evolved segmentation and fragmentation of society. With the aid of biographical miscellanea, the piece takes an intuitive look at connections between the “top” and “bottom” of modern society in terms of development, upheaval and causality.
The principle of separation, exclusion and inequality is contrasted with alternative visual, artistic drafts.
The Rosenhain with the “natural backdrop” of the city will serve as the stage for displaced young people from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran and displaced people from Graz and artists from Japan, Hungary and Austria.
