Serge Onnen and Brian McKenna join forces and cull additional comrades to provide a shadowy revision of the events of October, examining the strange process by which the images of the revolution were made and diffused as if on a mad whirligig which did much to establish the spectacle of news that we are in thrall to today.

Nomenkatura Proyezdom II: October on the Train by Marina Tsetaeva
A charged theatrical duet by Nataliya Golofastova and Lika Volkova (performed dually in Russian and English) transforms a fragment from the diaries of Marina Tsetaeva into a dynamic aural and visual performance that is at once intimate and outlandish.

Thomas Myrmel & Sofie Fetokaki perform

ReFeRe brings first hand accounts of the Bolshevik revolution by women such as Inessa Armand, Alexandra Kollontai, and Nadia Krupskaya together in a wide ranging sonic collage- a meticulous composition of sound, words and song; delicately balancing on the borders of radioplay, electronicopera and installation.

Year One, Parts VI-X
Performances prompted on sequential texts of Victor Serge in 13 episodes: a mix of theatrical sketches, performance, video stills and musical interventions. We were witnessing how fiddle sticks meet electronic devices to make the most beautiful noise music. It ended in a impressive shape where huge red velvet covered autumn leaves.

As performance the deconstruction of the puppet tent after What Goes Around, Veselyy, Veselyy was equal interesting. Photo by Mattis Cuypers.
