Two poets together with three musicians performing not so much literature as live text ... to create a complex cityscape, revealing the undercurrents and secrets we pass in the urban environment every day. Featuring voice and live music, against a soundtrack, that ranges from the beautiful to the ridiculous using interviews, street sounds, overheard conversations and the noise of machinery to create a background for the peculiar, urgent messages of those excluded from the city's functions and the city's wealth.

entrance 30 Kč

18. CESTA/Divadlo Jo  8 pm
Sisygambis [Nchan Manoyan and Christine Coulange] (F) : video screening
Title : "Virtual Encounters Along the Silk Road"
Visual samples collected during an expedition across central and oriental Asia, through Buddhist and Muslim civilizations.
Contemporary explorers, Nchan Manoyan and Christine Coulange, equipped with digital gear, were imbued with singing, stares, the dust of Peshawar, the desert of Xinjiang or the oasis city of Kashgar.
When back to the loneliness of the studio, it was time to weave and paste in order to create parallel stories between sound and image. The filtered memory of everlasting composition becomes the sensitive thread that ties the artists' universe to the object of their emotions.

"Depending on where you stand, the world seems different."
- Christine Coulange

30. Train Station Tábor  8:30 pm  free of charge and open to the public
