In June 2019 we will present Petra Strahovnik’s first set of new works: Five solo pieces through which we engage with durational art. In each piece, individual musicians deal with different mental conditions: Trumpet – Autism, Guitar – Depression, Clarinets –Bipolar disorder, Percussion – ADHD, Cello – anxiety disorder. Each piece lasts approximately three hours, and the idea is to have them performed simultaneously in five galleries across The Hague, repeating these performances each day over a period of four days.

This set of five pieces is part of DisOrders, a two-year collaboration project between Ensemble Modelo62 and Petra, supported by Fonds Podiumkunsten and Gemeente Den Haag. It will culminate in 2020 with the production of the opera ‘BalerinaBalerina’, whose libretto is based on the book with the same name, written by the Slovenian Marco Sosič.
