SERGIU MATIS (DE/RO)
Extinction Room (Hopeless.)
The voices of birds, whose chants and songs can be heard in this performance, are either irretrievably lost or belong to endangered species. In this dreamlike yet highly realistic and compelling performance, Sergiu Matis leads the way into the evening glow of human interaction with nature. The sound recordings from the archives of the Macaulay Library at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Xeno Canto Foundation mix with the sounds of composer AGF (Antye Greie), with stories and with dances in the well-researched explorations into the subject of loss by the three wonderful performers to create a powerful experience.
Duration: 120 Minutes
