Songs to the sun 2021

Cabaret Voltaire  Re- Visits Monte Verità, Ascona „Songs to the Suns” Monte Vérità

In the research based works, Izidora LETHE starts from the body as a site of knowledge production and knowledge-repository. LETHE is concerned with revising depoliticized notions of landscape, geology, or the body in interdependence with its human and non-human environment.
For «Songs to the Suns», LETHE pushes this groundwork further: with a focus on destabilizing the avant-gardists’ normative notions of body, movement, and idea of freedom. In doing so, LETHE honors an embodied
knowledge, that has often been systematically overlooked, notably, the knowledge of the queer, female, non-binary/trans*, postcolonial, and post-migrant body.

With Izidora l LETHE and Paul Maheke, Cabaret Voltaire invites two contemporary artists for a collaboration with the Monte Verità Cultural Centre. Performers on the opening weekend will be Val Minnig, Stéph, Nina Emge, Inez J Barrer, Hermes Schneider, Donya Speaks, and Claudia Barth. Yantan Ministry will make an audio contribution. Christa Baumberger, Sophie Doutreligne, and Minna Salami will participate in the conversation.
