“Reminiscence of the Rain / Washed Sky”PREMIERE

The first meeting of AURA dancers and 28 musicians of chamber orchestra is planned on 22nd of September. But it might... not happen. According to two most famous artists of the XX century – composer John Cage and choreographer Merce Cunningham, music and dance are living their personal lives on the stage. Disciplines can be mixed and performed together or separately, sometimes intersect, but may also not meet during all the way.

The concept of nostalgia is very important in performance. This is a Fredric Jameson described postmodern nostalgia, that turns into modernity, in art about art, art of aesthetics, in art which could be apolitical.
