Music theatre by Karmina Silec for vocalists of extended vocal techniques, instruments, electronics
Performers: Kitka ensemble and guests
BABA is inspired by the sworn virgins – the women who, after taking vows of chastity, adopt a man’s name and identity, wear men’s clothes, do men’s work, smoke, drink rakia, play the gusle … and join the men’s world.
The music theatre will draw on anthropological research on this practice to develop a multi-faceted performative form
