Way of the Masks

Fri 27 January

Hosted by: Anastasia Loginova

Experience an ethnographic Evening into the Theatre of the Strange, a masquerade event featuring renowned artists who unfold a mythological narrative trough masks, psychoacoustics, music, poetry, and choreography.
Featuring legendary vocalist Sainkho Namtchylak, this theatrical experiment will transfigure the physical and mental presences of the audience through the multidimensionality of a masquerade. Sainkho’s mixture of ancient Siberian music and electro-acoustic performativity collides with the ethno-futurism of German Popov. The night further takes you on a cosmological journey with Evelina Domnitch & Dmitry Gelfand and the Japanese Sho of Naomi Sato. Enter this psychological masquerade and create your own mask of transformation.

19.00–20.00: Entry & welcome tea
