On Stage

Neue Residenz – Kunsthalle

The anniversary exhibition transforms the Kunsthalle of the Salzburg Museum into a stage which functions as performance space for a special programme. Simultaneously, it offers a ‘stage’ for Festival stories by artists, by people on and behind the
scenes, and for dialogues with the public. In this way, the Kunsthalle becomes a site for visualizing impressions and memories, casting multiple perspectives onto the Festival and narratives about the Festival. For this purpose, the Kunsthalle is divided up into three sections: first of all, in a Felsenreitschule set where costumes and a photographic installation of all Festival productions are being presented. Secondly, in a studio presenting a remembrance project by Mats Staub with conversations about life and death related to Jedermann / Everyman. Thirdly, in the actual stage space with a versatile programme.

Death and Birth in My Life – Videoinstallation von Mats Staub

Six films on four monitors, headsets, carpet circles, chairs from the Jedermann / Everyman production of 2002

In Death and Birth in My Life, people with connections to the Salzburg Jedermann talk about their experiences with birth and death.

For the state exhibition, Mats Staub has gathered people together for conversations who have connections to Everyman, either on or behind the scenes. Among them are Cornelius Obonya (Jedermann/Everyman from 2013 to 2016) and Lena Sonnleitner (his dresser at the time); Peter Lohmeyer (Tod/Death since 2013) and Walter Lager (long-time props master); Elisabeth Trissenaar (Buhlschaft/Paramour from 1987 to 1989; Mutter/Mother from 2007 to 2009) and stage director Hans Neuenfels; Tobias Moretti (Jedermann/Everyman since 2017) and the president of the Salzburg Festival, Helga Rabl-Stadler; Franziska Wizany and Trude Kohlberger as well as Christine Walther and Paul Herbst (long-time guests of Jedermann/Everyman from Salzburg).

The artwork by Mats Staub addresses memories – and his central vehicle for doing this is the conversation. In the long-term project Death and Birth in My Life, people in diverse locations discuss the existential experiences they have made in life: ‘Whom
have I met, whom have I lost, and what happened to me on the way?’ For the anniversary exhibition, Mats Staub has gathered people together for conversations who have connections to Jedermann, either on or behind the scenes. Among them are Cornelius Obonya (Jedermann from 2013 to 2016) and Lena Sonnleitner (his dresser at the time); Peter Lohmeyer (Tod/Death since 2013) and Walter Lager (long-time props master); Elisabeth Trissenaar (Buhlschaft/Paramour from 1987 to 1989; Mutter/Mother from 2007 to 2009) and stage director Hans Neuenfels; Tobias Moretti (Jedermann since 2017) and the President of the Salzburg Festival, Helga Rabl-Stadler; Franziska Wizany and Trude Kohlberger as well as Christine Walther and Paul Herbst (long-time guests of Jedermann from Salzburg). This video installation produced exclusively for Salzburg marks a special place within the anniversary exhibition, one that invites intimacy and simultaneously gives the visitor a chance to participate in a communal and listening experience.

 

Glossary

Mats Staub (born in 1972, Muri near Berne, Switzerland) lives in Berlin. He studied dramatics, journalism and theology in Berne, Fribourg and Berlin. After working as a journalist and dramatic adviser at the Neumarkt Theatre in Zurich, he has been developing art projects since 2004 between the charged polarities of theatre and exhibition, between academic studies and literature.
