Piaf, Edith Piaf: Vesna Pernarčič

A Small Terrace in the Midst of Ljubljana
Music, theatre, cabaret and everything in between…



Performed by:
Edith: Vesna Pernarčič
Pianist: Joži Šalej
Production: KD Gledališče EU enigma ustvarjanja

 
Nobody could fail to notice her.
Nobody could imitate her.
Nobody can forget her.
Her name was Edith Piaf.
 

It seems the icon of Edith Piaf has lodged itself firmly in people’s consciousness: a gentle, fragile girl who rose from street singer to soul-stirring chanteuse. Nobody could have sung as beautifully and uniquely as Edith without not only having glimpsed but also tasted the dark side of life. The saying “only those who have endured hell can speak of paradise” undeniably applies to Edith.

The production was selected to compete in the 2004 Maribor Theatre Festival (Borštnikovo srečanje), where award-winning Vesna Pernarčič received the Best Actor Prize.

Vesna Pernarčič
Vesna first began performing professionally in her third year at the Ljubljana Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television as Mirandolina in P. Turrini’s Die Wirtin directed by Samo Strelec (ZATO Theatre, Ptuj). After graduation, she joined the acting ensemble of the Slovenian Permanent Theatre in Trieste. After three years, she became member of the Prešeren Theatre Kranj, where her first role was that of Micka in Županova Micka (The Mayor’s Daughter) directed by V. Taufer. She is currently member of the Prešeren Theatre Kranj.

Selected awards: žlahtna komedijantka (awarded to actors in Slovenian comedy, 2019, 2012, 2007, 2005), Best Actor Award at the Maribor Theatre Festival (2018, 2004), Prešeren Fund Award (2014)

KIKO DINUCCI feat Juçara Marçal

Inspired in equal measure by Joao Gilberto, Fugazi, African polyphonic music and his home city of Sao Paulo,
Kiko Dinucci offers an explosive take on 21st century Brazil. His style is raw - technically, he attacks the guitar strings, lyrically he explores Afro-Brazilian culture, slavery, Brazilian revolutionaries and candomblé.

 

Rastilho is a guitar record. It is the wood that sings.

Cansu Tanrikulu feat. Greg Cohen & Tobias Delius

Cansu Tanrikulu, voice; Greg Cohen, double bass; Tobias Delius, saxophone


Combining experience with a no holds barred attitude, improvisers Cansu Tanrikulu (TUR), Greg Cohen (USA) and Tobias Delius (UK) have been playing a selection of Europe’s finest creative music venues for the last three years. Sometimes creating an adventurous drift through their distinctive melodies and sometimes throwing you into the dense emotionality of a Shamanistic ritual, the trio invents new forms of avant-garde songs every single performance. The band has become one of the leading forces of Berlin’s improvised music scene since the three unique musical personalities started playing in 2018.

Cansu Tanrikulu describes this band as a pivotal development in her career that helped her shape an organic, diverse and spirited vocal improv style that became her signature quality as a performer. She has been fronting the trio since its formation and has developed the conceptual framework for the debut album “Kantoj de Fermiteco” (Songs of Closed Spaces in Esperanto), to be released this October on LowSwing Records. Touching upon messages about censorship, obsessive love relationship between the TV and its human, deeply internalised toxic masculinity in the form of broken mottos from a mother’s mouth, jukeboxes of doom and home-made Bibles, the music is basically a composed tableau of closed spaces assembled by Cansu Tanrikulu.
 

Cansu Tanrikulu is a singing multi-media artist, composer and improviser based in Berlin. She is one of the busiest young voices on the European Creative Music Scene leading/co-leading multiple bands including Melez (w. Jim Black & Elias Stemeseder), MeoW (w. Jim Black, Liz Kosack & Dan Peter Sunderland), Tanrikulu feat. Greg Cohen & Tobias Delius and Last Chance to Misbehave (w. Julia Hülsmann & Mia Knop Jacobsen).
Her elastic singing, wide stylistic vocabulary and far-reaching approach to melody and text-based improvisation made her an in-demand vocalist in multiple genres. She actively performs on Europe’s most prominent platforms.

As a composer and a conceptual thinker Tanrikulu’s initial instinct is to frame topics that are hard to imagine as musical entities and work with exceptional creative personalities.

She has a degree in Cognitive Psychology and is a receiver of Jazz-Preis der Karl Hofer Gesselschaft for Soloist (2019) and Elsa Neumann Stipendium (2021).

M.U.G. Trio

Premiere of the new album Mislec

Marko Brdnik, accordion; Uroš Rakovec, guitar; Gašper Peršl, drums

The M.U.G. Trio is celebrating autumn with a new album, Mislec, to be released digitally and on vinyl this October. The album’s instrumental compositions feature a blend of improvised and popular music enhanced by elements of classical music, classic rock and hip hop.
On Mislec, the three virtuosos embark on a sonic journey across multiple genres, reflecting on today’s social reality while spreading positive energy and optimism.

Marko Brdnik, Uroš Rakovec and Gašper Peršl have built promising careers as soloists, chamber and studio musicians. They play (also together) in various Slovenian and international award-winning avant-rock, jazz, etno-jazz, etc. bands. They write music (also together) for different theatre performances, dance shows and films.

V teh virtualnih časih je res poseben užitek izdelati nekaj oprijemljivega – to se nam zdi zelo pomembno. Borut Bučinel je ploščo oblikoval tako, da jo bo morda kupil tudi nekdo, ki doma nima gramofona,« poudarjajo glasbeniki. Z naslovnice njihove nove plošče nas opazuje okamneli mislec. 

Konec septembra objavljeni singel M.U.G. Tria Loviti sledi je napovedal izid nove plošče Mislec/Thinker, ki je 5. oktobra izšla pri Založbi Radia Študent v digitalni obliki in kot gramofonska plošča, sočasno s studijskim koncertom na Afterpartyju Radia Študent. V instrumentalnih skladbah se mešajo sodobni jazz, improvizirani in popularni glasbeni tokovi, ki jih žlahtnijo vplivi klasične glasbe, klasičnega rocka in hip hopa. Glasbeni virtuozi na plošči Mislec skozi čezžanrsko zvočno potovanje premišljujejo o aktualnem družbenem dogajanju, kljub temu pa njihovo polnokrvno glasbo prevevata tako dobrodošla svetloba in optimizem.

Dragičević and Grom: To telo, pokončno (This Body, Upright)

Nina Dragičević, text, voice; Tomaž Grom, sound, music

Body as a vehicle of thought, including social class, ideological narratives, representational signals. Always targeted, under pressure. Everything pertains to it; everything bears upon it. It is not the last refuge of freedom, but a point the world infinitely cuts into, pelting it with massive amounts of words and violence, at times simply circumventing and thus annihilating it. Is the future possible?

Dragičević and Grom’s compositions derive from Nina’s book To telo, pokončno (2021), which deals with countless bodies, bodies finding their voice and being articulated in sound, that is, substantiated in space. A thought – critical, informed – starts to sound.

 

Nina Dragičević (1984) is a composer, sound artist, and a writer. She holds a PhD in Sociology. She is the author of four books: a novel Kdo ima druge skrbi (2014), and two essay monographs – Slavne neznane: Zvočne umetnice v konstrukciji družbe (2016, Eng. Famous Unknowns: Women sound artists in the construction of society), Med njima je glasba: Glasba v konstrukciji lezbične scene (2017, Eng. The music between them: Music in the construction of lesbian communities), Ljubav reče greva (2019), and To telo, pokončno (2021). She is the author of numerous electroacoustic compositions and sound installations. Nina is the artistic director of the Topographies of Sound International symposium-festival, co-editor at the Idiot literary magazine, and the author of Famous Unknowns radio show at Radio Študent. She won the 2020 Župančič Award, was shortlisted for the 2019 Jenko and Veronika awards, received the 2018 Knight of Poetry award, and was finalist for the Palma Ars Acustica Award.

Niko Novak and Jana Beltran

The autumn edition of the Cankarjevi torki Series is launching with two compelling Slovenian artists who have recently embarked on solo careers. And have been remarkably successful at it as well. They’ll be sharing the stage on 5 October. Whether they’re also conspiring to play something together, remains to be heard.

For Slovenian scenesters and music fans of a certain age, let's say from 30 to 70, Niko Novak needs little introduction: hugely charismatic frontman of punked-up rock n rollers Dicky B Hardy, one half of dirty blues duo Incurabili, and now a bass-playing solo artist with four albums of sly, downbeat, tender and occasionally vicious music now behind him (and two more in the can). This series of late-night, morning-after stories of Berlin and Ljubljana have been an open secret for the last couple of years in the Slovenian capital. It was high time for a physical release, vinyl only of course, so here it comes. Pankow, the third in the series, was produced in London by the legendary Jim Jones (Thee Hypnotics, Jim Jones Revue) and has been released on the new Nashville Stardust label. Tales of redemption that never quite arrives, of pride in and before a fall, in a voice of cracked, awesome beauty. Has he mellowed? Yes. And no. Key track: Honest People Are Scum.

Vocalist and guitarist Jana Beltran is one half of the duo All Strings Detached (Septet, 2020). She released a solo debut, Amoretti, last year. As well as compositions from her upcoming, second solo album, Jana has other treats in store for the Cankarjevi torki concert.

SONICA Festival: Labyrinth Gives Way to Skin

James Giznburg (UK)
Berlin-based James Ginzburg is a prolific musician of experimental electronic music, folk music, film and film score and dance music. He is one half of emptyset, a project which examines the material properties of sound and its correspondence with architecture, performance and physical modes of production; they have released on Raster Noton and Subtext, producing works for the David Roberts Art Foundation, Tate Britain and V&A Museum, and performing at Unsound, CTM, and Sonic Acts. He runs Multiverse, a publishing company and studio, which includes labels Subtext and Arc Light Editions.

Riccardo La Foresta (IT): Drummophone
Italian drummer, percussionist, composer, improviser and sound artist Riccardo La Foresta is one of the most intensive researchers of deconstruction of sounds, rhythm and pulse in the context of contemporary classical music, experimental music, improvisation and sound art. In his music and sound installations, the deconstruction of the relations between musical instrument, object, body, action, surface, collision, contact, mechanics, breath and vibration resounds. His Drummophone is a cross between a membranophone and an aerophone, where breath replaces the impact, the mechanics of replace the hit of a stalk of air, where playing spills over into listening, and the relationship between drum and body melts into the resonance of space.

Silvia Rosini (IT): Amotion
Silvia Rosini is an emerging composer and sound artist with a PhD in composition from Goldsmiths, who composes music in between contemporary music, electroacoustic music and installation. Invented sounds and objects, technology, objects, feedback loops, neural networks and databases enter into these relations between composer, performer and listener. Amotion, a work developed under the umbrella of the international EMAP/EMARE residency, through the relation between a musical instrument and a hybrid electroacoustic sound, interacts with the audience in a feedback loop, sounding and merging folk and other voices in a search for the in-betweens of emotional sediments in a shared sonic space. The work was presented at Ars Electronica in Linz, among other venues, and Rosini has also worked at ZKM Karlsruhe and the renowned SWR Eskperimentalstudio in Freiburg.

Benjamin Moser

Benjamin Moser’s latest book, Sontag: Her Life and Work (Ecco), won the 2020 Pulitzer Prize. The book that took seven years to write is an in-depth portrait of one of the twentieth century’s most influential intellectuals. Moser is a regular contributor to The New York Review of Books and The New Yorker. He is the author of the widely-heralded biography Why This World: A Biography of Clarice Lispector. After graduating in history and Portuguese from Brown University, Moser received his Doctorate from Utrecht University. He has lived in Brazil, Paris, Venice, and spent the last few years living between Amsterdam and Périgord (France).

No writer is as emblematic of the American twentieth century as Susan Sontag. Mythologised and misunderstood, lauded and loathed, a girl from the suburbs who became a proud symbol of cosmopolitanism, Sontag left a legacy of writing on art and politics, feminism and homosexuality, celebrity and style, medicine and drugs, radicalism and Fascism and Freudianism and Communism and Americanism, that forms an indispensable key to modern culture.

 

The definitive portrait of one of the American Century’s most towering intellectuals: her writing and her radical thought, her public activism and her hidden private face.

 

I am tired of being a person. Not just tired of being the person I was, but any person at all. I like watching people, but I don’t like talking to them, dealing with them, pleasing them, or offending them. I am tired.
Susan Sontag

»Na voljo sem imel njene dnevnike, ki jih je pisala od šestnajstega leta, tudi še neobjavljene dele, vso korespondenco, njen osebni računalnik z vsemi ohranjenimi datotekami, elektronsko pošto, poleg članov družine sem se pogovarjal z več kot stotimi ljudmi, ki so bili tako ali drugače povezani z njo. Kar ste brali v tej osemsto strani dolgi knjigi, je samo dvajset odstotkov zbranega v začetni grobi različici.«

»Američani so jo imeli za evropsko avtorico, toda v resnici je bila, kot pišem v knjigi, med judovskimi avtorji svoje generacije najmanj evropska, če pomisliva samo na Saula Bellowa ali Philipa Rotha, katerih starši so bili rojeni v Evropi, njeni stari starši pa so se priselili v ZDA kot otroci. Pravzaprav ni imela globljih evropskih korenin. Američani so jo imeli za evropsko avtorico, Evropejci pa za ameriško, kar je po mojem mnenju edino prav. Ne bi si mogel predstavljati slovenske ali pa francoske Susan Sontag. Susan je nekako predstavljala moč ameriškega imperija, v smislu intelektualnega prestiža in glamurja, čeprav je pisala o nevarni in pogubni ameriški notranji in zunanji politiki, zatonu ZDA …«

»Glede prikrivanja svoje spolne usmerjenosti je bila otrok svoje generacije, biti istospolno usmerjen in to povedati na glas je bil tabu za pretežni del njene generacije. Zanjo je bila to najbolj neprijetna tema. Potem pa, tudi ko so se časi spremenili, je bila že prestara, da bi o tem razpravljala na glas. V ZDA je vedno bilo mogoče biti lezbijka ali homoseksualec, javno in zasebno. Težava je bila v tem, da se v tem ni smelo pokazati javno in za ugled slavne osebnosti je bilo še kar nevarno; v knjigi citiram pisatelja Edmunda Whita, ki mu je bilo takrat od vseh istospolno usmerjenih ameriških pisateljev najmanj mar, kaj si o tem mislijo drugi, ko pravi, da bi Susan s svojim razkritjem zagotovo izgubila dve tretjini bralcev. In ima prav. Govorimo o času izpred petdesetih, ne petsto let! Ob pisanju biografije sem en semester  na losangeleški univerzi poučeval latinskoameriško književnost in se mudil tudi v tamkajšnjih arhivih Sontagove. Bil sem neprijetno presenečen, da študentje niso vedeli ne za Sarajevo ne za morijo, ki se je v devetdesetih dogajala na Balkanu. Takrat se sploh še niso rodili. Tako kot tudi ne morejo razumeti, kako težko življenje so še pred tridesetimi, petdesetimi leti imeli homoseksualci in lezbijke. Verjetno mislijo, aha, gotovo je šlo pri zatiranju za verske fanatike in njihove predsodke. Ne! Ni bilo tako preprosto.«
