Irena Pivka & Brane Zorman: Earthling Gaia

soundwalk in_situ performance
Thursday 26, Friday 27 Aug 2021 at 7p.m.
Saturday 28, Sunday 29 Aug at 6p.m.
Notranjska regional park, Cerknica, Slovenia
production of Cerknica Culture House
To participate, send an email to info@kd-cerknica.si

A dystopian story of Earthling Gaia recounts a possible future of the Lake Cerknica area. We experience the sound performance while walking a selected part of the Drvošec trail. We stop at the observation posts, observe the lake, experience the forest and, above all, listen. Earthling Gaia, a girl as a metaphor and the main character of the performance, will speculate on a potential scenario of the future of our overstrained planet which indisputably dictates the development of the local landscape.
