Presented by AUSSENWIRTSCHAFT AUSTRIA.
A_NEW_DAY is a music-based performance combining elements from the world of theater with electronic club music, state-of-the-art technologies with archetypical storytelling motifs, filmed and animated visuals with immersive audio.
At Forward Festival Sascha Bém (composer, author) and Clemens Handler (co- author, director, vocals) will take you along a perennial journey that lead them from moments of inspiration at the piano to a new entertainment format. Being supported by Tagtool’s Matthias Fritz (real-time animation) Sascha and Clemens will merge presentation and performance combining the talk with live music and live visuals.
As a performance A_NEW_DAY explores new ways of artistic expression within innovative technology, using the sensual opulence of its setup for a journey inside, extending an invitation to the audience to release potentials of change, reflection and awareness.
As a creative project A_NEW_DAY is a challenge where each artist involved has to cross borders and leave behind professional routines. It is an idea that has become independent and leads its team into uncharted territory.
As a movement A_NEW_DAY works as a interdisciplinary catalyst for new creative processes and co-operations – this year from SXSW in Austin to Forward Festival, Expo Kazakhstan and DLD Tel Aviv. *
But above all: A_NEW_DAY stays an adventure with uncertain outcome.
