iT: Another Crying Game (SI)
“We sing with our bodies. And if we dare, we open our soul through it. Whether we are aware of it or not - voice declares us. Voice defines our being. Voice is emotional, physical and therefore spiritual.”
Crying Games is perhaps Irena Tomažin Zagoričnik’s most recognisable piece and one she last presented at Druga Godba in 2012, where it met with a rapturous response. Another Crying Game, performed under the ‘iT’ moniker, continues and extends that earlier project, playing the music off against fragments of text and song lyrics, and interweaving voice, melody, monologue, dialogue, recordings, and loops that are cancelled by noise or refined in isolation. Another world premiere for this year’s festival.
