WE PLAY TONIGHT NO MORE SORROW | performative event
Colchestre Arts Center | 26th of April, 2012 | featuring DINGUS KHAN and GULLS | Project supported by Polish Cultural Institute in London |
This project evolved from the idea of two groups of people meeting. It reflects the human reality experienced by people when they have to confront differences or merging.
"For some a terrifyingly formless sonic barrage to be endured rather than enjoyed - for others a deliciously cacophonous sound-clash, peppered with moments of majestic euphony. Justyna’s piece illustrates the absurdity in the conventions of the live music experience, and the wonderful things that can happen when one distorts a stale, often sanitized formula. There’s no competition, no explanations, no expectations... Justyna invites you out from the safety of established gig-going conventions into an environment full of thrilling uncertainties”.
Stafford Glover, Executive Producer, Colchester Arts Centre
“(...) Scheuring’s work aims to de-construct the illusion of stability in everyday social relations. Her works provide a testing ground, a possibility to venture into the unknown or to employ a critical resistance within a given situation. In ‘We Play Tonight No More Sorrow’ Scheuring’s constructed situation is ‘outside-of’ or ‘displaced’ from the usual, but also integrated and grounded enough into real life sociospatial relations not to be completely removed and abstracted, and this is where the challenge lies. The collaboration or participation lies in the choice to attend the concert, and to choose to stay or to leave throughout.”/extract
