About The Event

This project stages an improvisational collaboration between local electronic musician Brother El from the south side of Chicago with actors and musicians from Ilkhom and Bata theaters of the post-colonial post-Soviet south, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. The collaborative work is centered on the concept of adaptations or ‘translations’ broadly understood at the nexus of sound, movement, and poetry. The event is structured around five vignettes from Central Asian poetry, bringing classic Central Asian instruments and synthesizers into a transnational dialogue about movement, collaboration, connection, sonic mixing, fusion, synthesis and layering. The project critically takes up the praxis of adaptation/translation to explore decolonial and minority experience of the ‘south.’
