The project “Belgrade Musical Arches” had been initiated in 2015, in cooperation with the “Cultural Element” organization. The basic idea was to enrich and affirm already existing exhibitions or theme exhibitions done by Belgrade City Museum. This was done by organizing various musical programs, which had quality, versatility, and attractiveness.
By molding together music and other arts, music programs and musical-stage performances are created and performed in museums within Belgrade City Museum (The Residence of Princess Ljubica, Resavska 40b, Museum of Banjica Concetration Camp, Museum of Paja Jovanović , Museum of Ivo Andrić).
Artist of various profiles took part in the program, while production and realization included members and associates of the “Cultural Element” organization.
After the well-received opening performance in Paris, Ana Gnjatović’s electro-acoustic cabaret will be staged in the Vaulted Hall, at the Residence of Princess Ljubica.
As Within the third season of Belgrade’s Musical Vaults, the Belgrade City Museum and the Cultural Element present to the audience the young Serbian artists assembled around A Weill Ago.
The programme for a soprano, a piano and an electronic set is inspired by Kurt Weill's personality and music. His songs, as well as the voices of Lotte Lenya, Berthold Brecht, Danilo Kiš..., the sounds of childhood and the sounds of war, archival recordings and a personal history, appear, diffract and layer one upon another through sung, spoken, recorded and sampled inserts. Ana Gnjatović’s built-up electroacoustic layer contextualizes and comments on Weill's songs performed by the soprano Tijana Đuričić to the piano accompaniment of Milivoje Veljić. Together, these two layers make a cabaret-like bittersweet acoustic narrative about art and responsibility.
The admission is free.
The number of visitors is limited.
