Memorysound

  • Dietla 29/1 29 Dietla Kraków, małopolskie, 33-332 Poland (map)

How do we define space and what are the stories these spaces tell?

Performance maker Patryca Dołowy and musician Alex Stolze collaborate on an evening of music and performance, conjuring a space for listening to untold stories and unhearable voices. Stolze presents a haunting, postclassical violin performance bookending a dynamic and interactive "Memory" game constructed by Dołowy, inspired by a 1926 memory book from Eastern Poland and Dołowy's recent discovery of family in America.

Patrycja Dołowy is a Polish artist, writer, and science journalist. For many years she has been interested in the problems of memory and Jewish heritage in her art and work. She bases her projects on oral history and testimonies. German composer/producer Alex Stolze transforms the traditionally entrenched sound of the violin, bridging classicism and contemporary amorphous electronic music. He most recently brought his experimental sounds to the Venice Biennale.
