It is a pleasure to announce the first two performances/live-improvisation acts for the event Musica Dispersa at TATO Art Gallery in Tbilisi for 2 of December 2022.
This date also marks the 10th anniversary of Musica Dispersa.
From Italy ALESSANDRA ZERBINATI
Alessandra Zerbinati, is an Italian performer and noise artist. Considered one of the most controversial and extreme figures on the Italian scene, her performances are one synthesis of theater, butoh dance, body marking and noise. The civil engagement jobs of her face themes such as abortion, domestic violence, self-harm, death and abandonment through a sound amplification system of the moving body and the use of bizarre instruments designed by her.
She have been touring all Europe and have played at the Miami International Noise Conference.
Alessandra is part of Musica Dispersa since the very beginning and also part of our project Women in Experimental so its very special to count with her for our 10th anniversary.
Tbilisi based performance/improvisation act DARJA KAZMIRA & ZURA MAKHARADZE
Ritual improviser, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, performance artist Darja Kazimira together this time with Zura Makharadze.
“Darja Kazimira” is a project of the Latvian/Georgian experimental improviser, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and artist Darja Kazimira Zimina. The ideological core of the project is based on the idea of a regular search for a dynamic object-center of the ritual, through the construction and study of the principles of sacred space erection. The search is carried out through self-initiated rites of burial, funeral, sacred violence, fertility (cults of the ground), as the embodiment of the idea of transformation and its irreversibility. For this, the author also uses bodily practices, many of which are of an authentic masochistic nature. The genealogy of the tragic and ancient tragedy also has a great influence here. The main form of the musician’s expression is long improvisational cycles of a pseudo-storytelling nature, for which the author uses they own asemiotical, idiosyncratic language, generating semantic keys that cannot be deciphered by the listener, thus supporting the idea of realizable meaning, as well as its complete absence.
