In his works, the Hungarian intermedia artist Dávid Somló creates situations that, using simple elements, structures and instructions, enable complex, unrepeatable results. His Drift project was created at the intersection of performance, intervention and sound choreography. It lasts one hour and is performed with 15 local performers. These follow the “invisible paths” in the larger public square or in its immediate vicinity. The performers move according to the author’s clear, simple instructions and carry portable speakers with them. From the latter (depending on the space itself) a specific result of the composition is formed and creates a unique soundscape.

Performance date: Sunday, 27 August 2023, starting at 7:00 p.m.

Location: Prešeren Square, Ljubljana

We are looking for 15 performers – volunteers, who are interested in such projects and would like to participate in the performance. No prior experience is required, knowledge of English (for communication with the artist) is mandatory. Preparations will be short and simple.

Estimated schedule: meeting with the artist on and rehearsals on Saturday, August 26 (app. 15.00-20.00), and rehearsals and performance on Sunday, August 27, 2023 (app. 15.00-20.00).
