The concert is a continuation of musical and linguistic search led by Tomasz Krzyżanowski and the CHOREA Theatre.
The language and the rhythm are fascinating. There is absolute brotherhood between them. There is a rhythm in the language, and the rhythm itself is a language too. It is exciting that when writing music, you can be inspired by both these phenomena, and that it works in both directions: sometimes you start from the melody, character and sound of syllables, while at other times you begin with the pulse, placement of the words in time, accents and pronouncing sounds in a given order, or with the rhythmical code into which you weave individual words and sentences. The melody of words, rhythm of sentences and phrases are like the song of the language. You can just listen to it, or analyse it as if it was a musical score. Yet, this song has an open form – you can use it in various ways, change it like in a kaleidoscope. And as in the kaleidoscope there is a place for various colours, shapes, images and emotions, also in the “Rhythm of Language” concert there is a place for songs and rhythms inspired by languages of the world.
In this musical “mosaicon”, we will hear the Persian temperament, Turkish Orient, Akkadian mystery, Old Greek pathos, Elvish magic, Polish word-games and others. This time, we wanted to find in the rhythm and sound of languages everything that can move and directly touch human sensitivity. We have been searching for the possibility to open, both in the performer and the listener, the new perspective of time, perception and awareness.
