Songs of absence.

“Songs” and “absence”, the two main words in the title, are the content and program of this work.

From a feminist perspective, “Absence” looks for the things that are missing, that are not visible, that disappear in the gaps, that want to be said or not, and questions whether absences are ‘just’ a not-wanting/not being able to see. 

”Songs” refers to a formal examination, with the traditional form and album structure of songs, as well as with contemporary performance structures per se. It’s about the composition, the physical, tonal, spatial composition of an evening that works like a polyphonic parkour: polyphonic – multiphonic, an autonomy and independence of the voices.
The result is a songbook, an album, an archive that tries to make the absent visible, to give it a name, to create a homage to the forgotten, the repressed.
