STORIES OF THE PRESENT WAR X LIVING RECORD FESTIVAL
January 20, 22, 27 & 29 at 7pm UK time
February 21 at 4pm UK time
In a live puzzling out of complex matters, a rediscovered collection of letters from the 1940s catalyses a dialogue between then and now. Collective and personal histories collide as we (re)consider and (re)configure the stories we tell and the things we inherit.
Stories of the Present War is a durational performance project and installation by Becka McFadden and Beautiful Confusion Collective, inspired by a collection of letters written by Becka's grandparents during World War II.
VARIACE VERTIGO / VERTIGO VARIATIONS
Coming to Venuše ve Švehlovce in 2021
In a world where stability feels impossible and everything seems always to be shaking, we ask how to find our feet and move forward. How do we learn to live with this state, to work with it, to even - perhaps - fall in love with it? Live music, projection and movement fuse in a performance inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's iconic film Vertigo and our own experiences of dancing on the edge of oblivion.
Supported by Venuše ve Švehlovce and the State Fund of Culture of the Czech Republic
