Show descriptionHide description

It is an extraordinary, immersive musical experience created especially for Kaunas and the people who love it. Composer Philip Miller (South Africa) and visual artist Jenny Kagan (Great Britain) invite you to find yourself in a labyrinth of music and video images in the Žalgiris Arena, where the viewer will be able to choose which sound or artist to listen to and which image to watch.

This immersive music piece was created in collaboration with Lithuanian performers of various genres - the cantata will be performed by opera soloists Rafailas Karpis, Agnė Stančikaitė, Steponas Zonys, Tshegofatso Moeng (PAR), performers of the folklore ensembles "Babadag", "Ainiai", "Ratilėlis", and Kaunas Symphony Orchestra, Kaunas State Choir, Brass Orchestra "Ąžuolynas", VMU Students String Quartet, VMU Choir "Vivere Cantus", Sacred Music School Choir "Cantores David", Juozas Naujalis Music Gymnasium Pupils Choir, choirs "Cantate Domino", "Gintaras", speakers Bella Shirin and Violeta Rakauskaitė-Shtromas. The project was also joined by the Klezmer Orchestra from Seine (Poland). Executive director Chris Baldwin (GB/Bulgaria).

The work was inspired by personal testimonials, memories, and a rich and multifaceted world of sound. Its creators ask: What does it mean to look into the face of “the other” and confront ourselves, and to look directly into the face of our own humanity? The music and songs featured in this project are a way to help us find commonality, discover shared bonds among painful stories, and build a new relationship with a controversial history. “In Kaunas Kantata we hear a multitude of voices. We listen to songs in different tongues and in different spaces. We experience moments of harmony and dissonance, cacophony and silence. And those moments when sound becomes one", says composer Philip Miller. His music currently accompanies William Kentridge's exhibition "That Which We Do Not Remember" in Kaunas.

Kaunas Kantata will be a walking experience, but for people with mobility problems seating possibilities will be provided. The duration of the work is 1 hour.
