Multimedia arena with musical narratives from Lithuania
Indrė Jurgelevičiūtė comes from Lithuania and is an extraordinary musician. She travels
the world with her Kanklės, a traditional Baltic string instrument. The music of her country is her starting point, but she likes to wander through other worlds of sound while improvising and playing together. For roundABOUT, Indrė sings and plays songs with a story about an old legend or a fairy tale. Wonderful folk music with roots which go way back.
In roundABOUT, you find yourself not only literally in the music and sounds of Indrė, you are also surrounded by video images. Video artist Nele Fack imagines the stories from the songs and conjures up swans, deer, bees, wolves, fish, stars, trees and clouds, which pass by all around you. Choreographer Francesca Chiodi Latini maps out the route for this poetic experience which takes you to a world where unique sounds and nature meet each other. A multimedia journey to enjoy together.
