History is a semantic construction, which, through the use of words, aims to create new truths. However, it is vitally important to understand that the stories told are not always true, but only reflect the perspective of the writer. It is a fact that the stories that have been told about various female artists have been created and standardised from a male perspective and in a specific era. This fact means that most of these women are represented in a way that does not correspond to them.
SILART artistic team will premiere EUNOIA 2.0 -prostitution of stories- on June 28th in the venue offered by the cultural institution Kulturhaus Helferei in the Swiss city of Zurich. For approximately one hour, this performance invites the audience to question the veracity of the stories that have been told about women composers, through live music, dance and literature.
Exclusively for this project we have conducted interviews with female composers from many parts of the world: Negin Zomorodi, Helena Cánovas, Maja Ratjke, Agnes Pettersen and Riikka Talvitie. Their voice is the truest source that can be used to tell their story; therefore, the unifying element of this performance is their voices, those they have used to express themselves artistically, personally or as a creative element incorporated into their compositions.
With your help and the money raised, this project can be streamed live, so you can watch the premiere without having to travel to Zurich. In addition, you will receive all updates on our upcoming projects and especially the recording of the premiere of EUNOIA 2.0 -prostitution of stories-. And if this is not enough for you because you are even more interested in getting to know us better, we also offer you the opportunity to engage in a conversation with the artists involved in SILART through a meeting (virtual or real), in which we can talk more deeply about the philosophy behind the project.
WHO WE ARE
SILART is a musical group made up of Iratxe Ibaibarriaga Ibeas (cello), María Muros García (flute) and Celia Torres Pérez (saxophone). However, the philosophy behind each project requires in most cases collaborations with other artistic disciplines that enrich the visual content of these projects in order to reach a wider and more diversified audience. For this occasion, we are pleased to have the collaboration of the dancer Clara Thierry.
DESTINATION OF YOUR CONTRIBUTION
In order to carry out this project, we need, first of all, funding to hire the equipment for the Streaming. In addition, the premiere of EUNOIA 2.0 will revolutionise the panorama of interdisciplinary performances due to the innovation of its staging and dressing. This requires a lot of effort, time and, of course, money. Finally, with your contribution you also help to ensure that the quality work of each of the artists involved in the project is properly remunerated.
ABOUT THE PREMIERE
EUNOIA 2.0 -prostitution of stories-* will premiere on 28 June 2022 at 19:00h in Die Kapelle, a charming space offered by the cultural institution Kulturhaus Helferei (Zurich).
