The second evening in the Voice as a Strategy series is devoted to the Soviet song legacy and its traces in contemporary culture. The guest of the evening is the artist and singer Lisokot.
Lisokot’s performances can be described as prepared improvisation and the artist’s voice is her only instrument. In her performances Lisokot often revisits and deconstructs the Soviet song legacy, giving Soviet songs a new form and a new sound. Working with light, props, costumes and masks, childhood memories and experiences, as well as historical episodes, Lisokot creates strange and fascinating performances that invite the listener on an exciting adventure.
After a forty-minute performance, Lisokot will discuss her work with other guests of the evening: writer, poet and philologist Psoy Korolenko, cultural manager Maksim Krekotnev, and Garage curator Valentin Diaconov.
