Garage is calling for volunteers to take part in the Interiorisation III performance. We are ideally looking for amateur singers, but professionals are also welcome to apply. Participants should be aged 15 or older.
As part of the NET (New European Theater) Festival, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art invites visitors to witness the interiorisation of the Museum's Atrium Space. Interiorisation III is the third in a series of performances aimed at exploring space through art. The world "interiorisation" derives from the Latin interior, meaning "from the outside inward." In psychology, interiorisation stands for the transformation of external actions or events into the internal space and the formation of the unconscious.
Garage's interiorisation is a study of the building's history and environment through simultaneous vocal compositions, where music defines the volume of the space by revealing the structure of its architectural elements and voids. Improvised scenery and costumes are used in place decoration, a conventional script, or a pre-written score.
The preparation for the performance will take place in several stages. The first is vocal workshops based on the voice release method developed by the New York University professor and singer Lisa Sokolov. The workshops will be conducted by her student, singer and performer Alexey Kohanov. This methodology helps to unleash the singing potential of participants of any background and to teach them the basics of vocal improvisation. The second stage is a series of sessions led by choreographer and performer Sonya Levin, dedicated to movement skills. Lastly, artist and director Vera Martynov will provide master classes on visual culture.
