Cetinjska 15, Beograd

After a well-received April premiere at the Serbian Cultural Center in Paris, Ana Gnjatovic’s electro-acoustic cabaret was first performed in Serbia at the Kragujevac kitchens center in November last year. .

The program for soprano, piano and electronics is inspired by Kurt Weil’s personality and music. The vocals of the poem, as well as the voices of Lote Lening, Bertolt Brecht, Danilo Kiša …, the sounds of childhood and the sounds of war, archival footage and personal history, arise, repel and seduce through singing, spoken, recorded and collected passages. The built-in electroacoustic layer Ana Gnjatović contextualizes and comments on Vajlov’s poems performed by soprano Tijana Đuričić with the piano accompaniment of Milivoje Veljić. Together, these two layers make a cabaret bitter-sweet sound art narrative about art and responsibility.
