KATERINA OIKONOMOU | PERFORMANCE INTERVENTION

Filmed by Tokomburu

Production by Inkas Film Productions

Katerina Oikonomou, soprano (1981), Poros, Greece | And There Was Voice

Classical music training, opera and aesthetics face deconstruction and denudation in this work by Katerina Oikonomou, who uses her voice to discover the limits of body and spirit. For eight hours, she will produce sounds — classical arias, contemporary songs, voices, screams — that reveal her inner self and the very limits of her vocal chords. Through these sounds, she will overturn and deconstruct the classical aesthetic, the decorum, beauty and stereotypes of the opera form, using her voice as a raw material for the creation of a new sound, stripped back, from scratch.

Commissioned and produced by NEON + MAI, Katerina Oikonomou, And There Was Voice, and the Pain Passes, on the occasion of AS ONE, Benaki Museum, Athens, 10 March – 24 April 2016, Filming Tokomburu, Production Inkas Film Productions
