A pas­tic­cio of works by W. A. Moz­art con­ceived by Joachim Schlömer
Lib­retto: Joachim Schlömer and Bet­tina Auer based on Moz­art’s let­ters

The second Odys­sey, "Abendem­pfind­ung" (Even­ing Sen­sa­tion) that was con­ceived by Joachim Schlömer forms a part of the Ir­rfahrten tri­logy and is a pas­tic­cio of Moz­art arias, songs, in­stru­ment­al pieces (in­clud­ing some for the rare and evoc­at­ive glass har­mon­ica) and let­ters.
This tri­logy com­prises three in­de­pend­ent, self-con­tained per­form­ances that are mo­tivically in­ter­woven in­to a com­pel­ling whole through a great vari­ety of ref­er­ences. Vari­ous artist­ic genres – mu­sic, theatre, dance and video – are fused in­to an ori­gin­al form of mu­sic theatre that could very well point to the fu­ture. Joachim Schlömer, a noted dan­cer, cho­reo­graph­er and dir­ect­or sees his pro­ject as the "odys­sey of an artist from ex­tern­al con­trol to self-de­term­in­a­tion." This con­cerns not only Moz­art him­self, but also the artist in gen­er­al, and by ex­ten­sion, every­one who has over­come a crisis in their life to achieve their per­son­al free­dom.
