Caterina Barbieri & Ruben Spini
Composer and synthesiser musician Caterina Barbieri and artist Ruben Spini team up in the video Aurora Wounds, which is set in the High North. The channelling of a ghostly memory rips open the hemispherical dome of the planetarium like a bleeding scar in the space-time manifold. This haunting voice is a tale of vulnerability and catastrophe, the cold case of the human condition and its opaque relationship with the rest of creation and its sublime, encrypted manifestations. Unresolved, Icarian ecstasies fail to evade, instead ultimate witnessing a decaying planet and its sick, exhausted dawns. It’s a violent swansong pleading for radical commitment and a retuning of our place in the cosmos.
- 360° video at 8:30 p.m. (45min.) (Barbieri does not perform live)
- Tickets: € 14 / € 10

Florence To, Bendik Giske & Bridget Ferrill - PERSPICUS
PERSPICUS is a collaborative audiovisual piece by saxophonist Bendik Giske, Florence To (visuals), and Bridget Ferrill (sound). In a three-part composition, the work evolves in musical and visual patterns, inviting the audience to travel through imaginary spaces. Bendik Giske's saxophone playing is composed of continuous motions of breath, which combined with 360° visuals creates a sonic and architectural trip.
