Bricolage III

Bricolage is a performance series that partners artists from the creative capitals of Berlin and Chicago in an exploration of collaborative work in the COVID era. 
Co-curated by experimental musicians Magda Mayas and Dave Rempis, the series attempts to create new artistic partnerships, as well as new models for remote collaboration in this unprecedented time. Bricolage encourages artists to work creatively with the technological means available, and their limitations, to create new models that may have use and impact even after this era.
Bricolage is produced and broadcast by venue partners in each city, Elastic Arts in Chicago, and ausland in Berlin.
Tomeka Reid
Described as a “New Jazz Power Source” by the New York Times, cellist and composer TOMEKA REID has emerged as one of the most original, versatile, and curious musicians in Chicago’s bustling jazz and improvised music community over the last decade. Her distinctive melodic sensibility, always rooted in a strong sense of groove, has been featured in many distinguished ensembles over the years.
Biliana Voutchkova
is a devoted interdisciplinary artist, violinist, performer, composer, improviser and curator. Her constant creative research spans the widest possible range of sound, movement and vision. Her extended sonic, technical and physical capacities evolved into the development of a highly individual artistic language. Based between Berlin and her rural residency on the black sea coast of Bulgaria, Biliana works internationally as a soloist,
in group and collaborative settings and with renowned ensembles such as United Berlin, Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop, the Splitter Orchestra, Zeitkratzer, Ensemble Modern, Voutchkova/Thieke duo etc. Her often unconventional projects include original site specific works, performances, concerts, long durational and multi-disciplinary formats.
