NIGRA#MARIA#SANGO

18th – 21st October 2018

“There is a world beyond ours, a world far away, near and invisible” – Maria Sabina

This contemporary arts event was based on rituals and ceremonies conducted by hedonistic inspirations that draw upon ancient sagas and folklore mixed with the tribal inspirations of modern-day body marking. It seeks to question the stigmas that come with stepping out of the traditional ways of thinking and to explore intrinsic forces.

Events - NIGRA MARIA SANGO

For much of modern times, pagan rituals were stigmatised, removed from the body of society, their spiritual significance diminished. NIGRA#MARIA#SANGO explores through a fusion of tattooing and visual arts, live music and ritualised performance. The 3-day art exhibition attempts to connect the visitor with their own inner visionary and spiritual origins to explore how these form the basis of our modern search for conscious creation.

Exhibiting Artists:

Linus Barta (DE), Thomas Henriksson (SWE), Irakli Mamrikishvili (GEO), Sasha Myretue (DK), Ina Maria Medin (NO), Eva Maria Pech (DE), Peter Rintsch and Abd El R. Hashmat (DE, EGY), “After Milk” (JAP), Scruffy Kittn (NY) “The Waltz” (DE),

Special rituals and dance performance by: Lena Peaks and Milena Nowak (DE) Bellaberlin and Pauline Völker (DE).

Art and Music Festival #3

Events - Werkhalle Wiesenburg Berlin

Great things in the Werkhalle Wiesenburg during the Wiesenburg Art & Music Festival #3!

Saturday 25th 8pm | Roberto Poveda

Poveda’s music is recognised both for its understated, sensual sounds and for its humorous and profound lyrics. Combined with his relaxed vocal style mixed with a raspy voice, and lyrical guitar playing, Poveda produces an infectious and very compelling Latin sound with influences from bolero, salsa, rumba, samba, hip-hop, and jazz. With family roots in the Cuban Troubadour tradition, Poveda honed his craft writing songs on the porches of Havana’s La Vibora neighbourhood.

Lizzy and the Palm

15th July 2018

 

in dialogue with Joakim Heidvall’s Skogsbilder 

Lizzy and the Palm | To put it very simply, Lizzy is the singer and the Palm is the song. Or perhaps the Palm is the radio station where the melody is playing when she hears it and grabs a pen. Or perhaps it’s the dial she twists to pick up the signal. Perhaps the Palm is the ocean through which the sound waves travel, the glue between entities, the static, the magnetism. In any case, Lizzy doesn’t like to take all the credit.

An evening of amazing texts and vocals!
