Animal Making Workshops

Adults and children will be able to create masks and moving animals such as butterflies, dolphins or ravens at various locations throughout Vienna in May and June 2019. They can learn choreographies with these animals and delve into the story of »Orfeo & Majnun«. This intercultural tale unites the Greek myth of »Orpheus and Eurydice« with the oriental love story of »Layla and Majnun«. Wild animals are central to these narratives: Both Orpheus and Majnun flee into the wilderness after they have lost their loved one, and use music and poetry to tame the animals they encounter there.

These animal making workshops are free of charge and conducted as part of the Basis.Kultur.Wien WIR SIND WIEN.FESTIVAL. All animals that have been created in the course of the workshops may be taken home. All participants are invited to take part in the Parcours with their animal.

No registration is required for the animal workshops. Just drop in and join us! Please note that children should be six or over to take part.
