On November 24, at 7:00 PM, Zaratan presents two audiovisual performances: Khaled Kaddal's "The Sky is high but not for everyone" and Violeta Lisboa's "Weeping Songs".In a violent war experience, the human survival instinct swallows our bodies in dark bunkers. "The Sky is high but not for everyone" is an audio/visual performance focusing on the notions of transformation to post-traumatic growth. Oppressions and fears could swallows us to darkness and bunkers, with traumatic experiences. However, this transformation to a post-trauma, from a somber bunker to a bright sky, expands our individual and collective sensorial awareness beyond belongings and national identities.
"Weeping Songs" is Violeta Lisboa's latest multimedia project. One more chapter of your eternal musical.
