ORLANDO TRIP is a cinematic musical theatre about the mythical character Orlando. And a tribute to the great European minds Lodovico Ariosto and Virginia Woolf.
Orlando, a knight and traveller, crosses the seas several times and finally returns as a woman. His/her story is performed in 12 songs, intermezzi and videos. ORLANDO TRIP provides an international audience with sensual access to a European myth about metamorphosis, fluidity and transcending rigid boundaries.
The central questions of ORLANDO TRIP are addressed within the SEA CHANGE initiative in an international and interdisciplinary way. They focus on paradigm shifts in the context of “Female Empowerment”, “Mortality and Diginity”, “Home and Foreignness”, “Fluidity versus Binarity”, “Reconciling of Nature and Culture”.
SEA CHANGE is the name of an international initiative on the art of transformation after William Shakespeare’s precious term for fundamental change. The SEA CHANGE initiative has been growing since 2021 with the support of the Austrian Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs, Austrian cultural forums and embassies and involves partners in arts and sciences, theatres, festivals and universities worldwide.
A sea story. A triumph of the unconscious and the phenomenon of fluidity.
Fox On Ice is the joint project of Christian Maïr, musician, producer and filmmaker, and Anna Luca Poloni, writer and performer at the crossing of music, literature, film and theatre, which artistically explores fictional and real biographies and was launched in 2022 with Orlando Trip.
