Ame Henderson & Matija Ferlin: The Most Together We've Ever Been

18.03. at 20.00 - Dance Theater Ljubljana, SI

"Absurd, hilarious, vital and critical. Since 2003, Public Recordings’ dance experiments have established that choreography can be the unbridled tension between what is known and what is emergent – while their performances have made the remarkable case that dance can change the way we understand everything. Public Recordings’ ground-breaking performance works /Dance/Songs/, 300 TAPES, relay, Manual for Incidence and The Most Together We’ve Even Been have been presented in Austria, Croatia, France, Italy, The Netherlands the UK, and across Canada."

Matija Ferlin: Sad Sam Lucky

15.03. at 20.00 - Onassis Cultural Centre, Athens, GR
23.03. at 20.00 - Uovo Festival, Milan, IT

Ferlin’s performance Sad Sam Lucky is a physical response to the work of the Slovenian avant-garde poet Srečko Kosovel (1904 – 1926) whose confessional poetry is profound, contemporary in its spirit, internal tension and stylistic imagery, at the same time revolutionary in its ideas, brimming with immediate reflections of his personality, deeply touching and poetically invaluable.

Damir Imamović: Singing ornaments

27.-28.03. at 15.00 - Dvorana Duše Počkaj, Cankarjev dom, Ljubljana, SI

A workshop by one of the most renowned sevdah singers of younger generation Damir Imamović (Sarajevo, BIH).
The most significant trait of sevdah’s musical tradition is the so called 'melisma'* or decorating with ornaments. Actually, decorating a melody with all kinds of 'ornaments' is so fundamental to sevdah that it became much more than just 'decorating' - this method became the essence of the melody. What is the reason for it, how can we approach studying and researching sevdah, what kind of styles (personal and others) we encounter watching sevdah singers, all thisand more – is the subject of the workshop, led by Damir Imamović.
We kindly ask you to send us your motivation letter, short biography and your contact information by the 15th of March. More information is available at barbara.hribar@gmail.com

Svetlana Spajić: The workshop of ancient traditional singing, forms and techniques

29.-30.03. at 11.00 - Dvorana Duše Počkaj, Cankarjev dom, Ljubljana, SI

Svetlana Spajić will present ancient folk songs she learned while studying with some of the masters of this traditional art practice. The participants will have the opportunity to experiment with singing some of the most ancient traditional singing forms. Instead of using words like: tone, note, melody, intonation, much more attention will be paid to the ability to focus, projections of sound, and to listening and hearing, both individually and within the group. Because Svetlana would say that tradition is also a field of immense freedom and it is wonderful to hear singers, who carry this freedom within them.
We kindly ask you to send us your motivation letter, short biography and your contact information by the 15th of March. More information is available at barbara.hribar@gmail.com
