Songs of Wounding

Outernational - transtraditional concert series

In extensive research, singer and performer Mariana Sadovska has made field recordings in Ukrainian villages over the years, exploring various singing techniques forgotten in the collective memory. These archive recordings flow into a compositional dialogue between Sadovska and the composer and percussionist Max Andrzejewski. An evening that meanders between experimental pop, noise, ancient and contemporary music. Meditatively, it circles around the dark, the wound, the pain, the revolt. The audience enters the concert space through electronic sound installations by Marta Zapparoli, who deals with Sadovska's archive recordings in her own way.
In the listening session at 7 p.m. - the concert starts at 8 p.m. - the conductor and Belarusian activist Vitali Alekseenok and the choreographer Stephanie Thiersch will talk about »Rituals of Revolt«.
»How do you sing without a voice?« is written on a poster at the protests in Minsk, which conductor Vitali Alakeseenok experienced and accompanied as an activist. Silence was also impossible, so the demonstrators began to sing with their mouths closed. The conversation between Alekseenok and the choreographer Stephanie Thiersch, whose research deals with rituals, is about music in protest, rituals of rebellion and the »female face of revolution« (Olga Shparaga) in Belarus and Ukraine. The listening session, which is docked to the »Songs of Wounding« concert, will be interrupted by Max Andrzejewski on drums and his hosted by Elisa Erkelenz.
