No Longer Showing.
As a series of landscapes rendered for the stage, Sounds from Untitled Skies implicates in its staging the subjective processes underlying the artist’s experience of place, offering a convergence as well of choral sound fields, rhythmic vocal beats along with compositions that source inspiration from classical art song repertoire and Persian modal singing. Each of its six scenes are built on poems that render specific places - a bombed out city, unmediated natural landscapes, and a burning banquet table among them. Sahra Motalebi herself is in- and outside the frame—both narrator and actor, as well as architect—having constructed individual maquettes and projecting images of them here as stage-sets referencing her interest in 18th-century European paper architecture and early experimental theater. Sounds is a spectral collision of images, memory, concepts, and fiction.
