Feif Minuten is a random play. Made of: music, ambience and speech – mixed into a piece of 11.294 seconds – in any combination, as often as you want. This way mini-radioplays emerge which can be used as inspiring appetizers or in-betweens. The sentences are taken from every-day life, fantasy, the present, the past and the future.
„Von AHA bis WELL“
Each language has its own filler words and filler sounds which give time for thoughts to develop and build bridges from one sentence to the next. The piece creates an international conversation exclusively made of these words and sounds. Interviews with people speaking different languages are used as audio footage.
“Will it become a choir? – An acoustic world-tour across Vienna”
“Will it become a choir?” takes the polylingual atmosphere of Vienna which is constituted by the coexistence of the different languages as a starting point. Migrants speak about their life and their experiences in Vienna. They came to Vienna for all different kinds of reasons: as refugees, students, artists, looking for work. They speak in many different languages. Will their voices become a choir?
