Performance “Voices” in Lviv Philharmonic

07.11.2022
Description

The premiere of the electroacoustic performance “Voices” based on the poetry of Sophia Lenartovych was hosted as part of the “Muses Are Not Silent” concert series. The theatrical experiment united five artists, Vsevolod Sadovyi (Creator of the World), Daryna Turina (Spirit of Life, Mother), Sophia Lenartovych (Rational), Julia Vusach (Sensual) and Dmytro Naumets (director, coach).

This theatrical experiment brought poetry to life with the help of electroacoustic music and archaic songs, movement and plasticity. As Sophia Lenartovych declared at the press briefing, ‘The name of the event goes through the voices of art, which create a complete picture of the action here and now’. In the texts, the author broods on loss, home as a physical place and inner state, and the strengthening of personal boundaries, without which it is impossible to protect state ones.

In the heavens of the performance, the Creator fills the space with music, where the Spirit of life (song), human Rational (text) and Sensual (movement) interact. Characters pave the way from despair and pain to the birth and affirmation of freedom and love. Viewers witness the story of how Man acquires fullness and returns home, that is, to himself.

The “Voices” art project is dedicated to relatives and loved ones who are no longer with us, and to families who were temporarily or permanently separated by war.

“Ukraine–2022. Muses Are Not Silent” is a concert series in support of Ukrainian musicians during the russian armed aggression. Online concerts will become a platform for the uniting of the Ukrainian music community, as many musicians participating in these concert programs have become internally displaced people and have found shelter in Lviv.

We provide a free opportunity for the whole world to watch concerts on the official YouTube channel of the Lviv National Philharmonic. At the same time, we suggest our listeners from abroad make charitable donations to Ukrainian musicians who have stayed here in Ukraine.
