And then it turns out to be poetry! As part of the brut series “Handle with Care”, choreographer Alix Eynaudi will open a poetic-musical writing workshop at the Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art as a mixture of artistic experiment and coffee house. Music and choreography are brought together in a relaxed atmosphere, breaking with daily routines and allowing for poetic experiences in our everyday lives.

Alix Eynaudi – Noa + Snow (Session I: Subtunes). A gentle experiment between the everyday and the event

In this co-operation of Alix Eynaudi with brut, Wien Modern and the Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art, choreography meets New Music in a museal setting, creating a sphere of opportunities. In a workshop which is part of Notebooks, small acts of friend shipthe audience will have the opportunity of adding melodies to diary entries, making letters of application livelier and finding the choreography of their minds in their own hand-writings. Just like poets in the coffee house overcome their horror vacui in the face of empty pages lying before them on the table, this workshop intends to raise the participants’ awareness of the poetry that they may encounter in their everyday lives.

The first episode of this new series by Alix Eynaudi puts a piano at the centre. While special guest Han-Gyeol Lie deals with the art of tuning pianos and choreographer Alix Eynaudi dissects a performance into its various parts, the audience suddenly grows aware that poetry is actually all around us. A short message written by a member of the audience suddenly turns into something new and undefined. The Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art becomes a safe space for art in which people’s everyday lives are examined. Notebooks, small acts of friendship is a subtle experiment in which daily routines are combined with an art event.

The series °Handle with Care° offers insights into the creative processes of artists, tests new formats and creates a space for dialogue and exchange. Artists try out parts of their works in front of a limited audience in order to receive feedback, turning the spectators into accomplices.

Choreographer/dancer Alix Eynaudi lives and works in Vienna. She completed her training to become a ballet dancer at the Opéra national de Paris and studied contemporary dance at PARTS in Brussels. For seven years, she danced in Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s company ROSAS. She has been touring the world with her own pieces successfully since 2005. Alix Eynaudi regularly cooperates with the Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art. In the 2017/18 season, she showed her choreography Chesterfield there, a co-production with brut Wien.

*On Saturday, 10 November, between 2 and 5 pm, visitors of Notebooks, small acts of friendship have free access to the exhibitions of the Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art.
