Wild Garden Utopia workshop II: SOUNDSPACE

Events, Past
Park Anička, Košice 22.06.2024 15.00

We invite you to become part of a new chapter of the long-term botanical sci-fi project Wild Garden Utopia, created by the Hungarian artistic duo Kitti Gosztola and Bence György Pálinkás.

Through a series of workshops, we imagine a future where Japanese knotweed, a so-called invasive alien species, is the only plant in Europe, and the few remaining humans represented by the participants have no choice but to find harmony with nature and redefine themself as a community through rituals, sound making and empathizing with the plant. 

In the first part we make simple musical instruments and noisemakers from Japanese knotweed in the simplest possible way. After we imitate the sounds of our future landscape, and try a way to sound together without a lead.

If you are interested, you can sign up by email: monika.padejova@kair.sk.

The event will be in English.

You can participate in one or all three workshops. No previous experience or skills are required to participate.
