Today we visited our next exhibition space, Ulriksdals Palace Theatre, Confidencen. Work by SARA students and faculty will be exhibited from 13-17 June during the 2014 edition of Festival O/MODƏRNT.
"Festival O/MODƏRNT celebrates this “looking back” to the past by exploring the relationships between the work of old composers and the artistic and intellectual creations of modern culture, be it in music, art, dance, theatre, film, poetry, literature, academia and so forth.
Each year a single composer closely contemporary with the period when the Ulriksdals Palace Theatre Confidencen first rose to life will be the guiding spirit of the festival. In 2014 it will be the great operatic composer Christoph Willibald Gluck. Gluck reacted strongly against the overly-ornate and often superficial operatic practices of his contemporaries and, in his own music and plots, strove for what he called a “noble simplicity.” It is this neoclassical turn that lends this year’s edition of the festival its guiding concept.”
