#SOCIAL #MUSICAL: UNE MADAME
Clementine d’Orleans – the royal influencer
Musical theatre | Lieder & singing | Concert | Young people | Adults
As the nineteenth century ended and the twentieth began, Clementine was Grande Dame of Vienna’s Coburg palace. But in fact there was much more to her than that. Clementine was an early adopter of certain practices – social interaction, subtle manipulation, artful decision-making – that today would be widely associated with Social Media. The principles of self-promotion and maintaining a presence were the same then as they are now. “Social Media” is not a new invention. However, today the means, tools, and speed of communication have all changed (and still are changing) so dramatically that no end is yet in sight. UNE MADAME is a musical collage in which artists from PERFORMING ACADEMY, one of the leading school of its kind in the German-speaking world, approach the Social Media phenomenon in a manner which is both entertaining and artistic. Supported by a live band, they present a one-of-a-kind musical which draws unusual parallels between the world back then and the world today.
