Matteo Haitzmann

(Sons of Sissy): performance, music | (Requiem): Concept, Idea, Music, Composition, Performance

Studied jazz violin at the Anton Bruckner private university under Andi Schreiber and baroque violine under Michi Gaigg. As an additional field he begun “Performance Art” at the academy for fine arts in Vienna in 2014.

In 2009 he was holder of a grant in the frame of the EU-project “MELT – Migration in Europe and Local Tradition” in Munich.

In 2011 he founded the ensemble ALMA with a few friends, for which he also composes. ALMA mainly deals with traditional Austrian music and tries to develop it further.

It is exactly this connection to Austrian folk music that led him to work together with Simon Mayer for the play “Sons of Sissy”.

In 2017 he received a scholarship for performing arts from Salzburg (Jahresstipendium des Landes Salzburg für darstellende Kunst).
