Strawinsky:Animated injects a digital intervention that opens up new perspectives to ‘The Soldier’s Tale’, Stravinsky’s unique approach to music theatre. Its premiere at Germany’s PODIUM Festival in Esslingen was described as “a perfect amalgamation between theatre and animation” by Musik Heute. PODIUM enlisted animation collective, Motionfruit, to create the digital narrative. The production, which involves nine performers, formed part of the Europäische Kulturtage 2014 in Karlsruhe and featured at the Lucerne Festival 2014. This Video Showcase shows how an ambitious concept evolved into a collaborative production, a performance that not only elevates Stravinsky’s classic work to a new realm of modernity, but has the potential to open auditorium doors to new classical audiences.
