Modern Motherhood

Modern Motherhood

Mosaïque 26 May 2015

On Tues­day, May 26th join Mosaïque for a non-tra­di­tion­al mother’s day event we’re call­ing “Mod­ern Moth­er­hood” com­bin­ing three M-things that we love to hate: Moth­ers, Modern Music and Mimes.

Per­for­mance artist Liz Sixsen­sius joins sopra­nos Sarah Tuleweit and Clau­dia Guar­in, mez­zo Caitlin McK­ech­ney, vio­lin­ists Sil­via Kan­ic­ki & Johan­na Sum­mered­er, nar­ra­tor Brigitte Pekarek and pianist Chan­da Van­der­Hart for an evening of song, verse, move­ment and shop­ping that answers the ques­tion “are you real­ly going to wear that?”

Shop­ping, you ask? Darn tootin’!  Mosaïque  is not just attrac­tive and fun, we also have a social con­science. In hon­or of Mother’s Day we’re rais­ing mon­ey and col­lect­ing clothes for half-ways homes in Vien­na which serve women and chil­dren who are vic­tims of abuse- both domes­tic and sub­stance, as well as pover­ty.  The flea-mar­ket doors will open 2 hours ear­ly for those who seri­ous­ly need to get their fash­ion on, and the oppor­tu­ni­ty to shop will extend to the inter­mis­sion and post-con­cert. All pro­ceeds from the sale will go to projects ben­e­fit­ing the Frauen­häuser.

Come ear­ly for the fash­ion, stay for beau­ti­ful music by Brit­ten, Strauss, Hyung-ki Joo, Ruth Schon­tal and much, much more, and feel free to dress 50s vin­tage; that’s what we’ll be doing!

If any­one is inter­est­ed in donat­ing their fab­u­lous clothes or their time before or dur­ing the event, please con­tact Jen­nifer Davi­son or Chan­da Van­der­Hart.

Doors open at 5:30 PM and the con­cert begins at 7:30 PM !
