The "Art Scene" behind Exit Festival

By Natasa Tepavcevic
Belgrade, July 12 (Serbia Today) - Art Scene was a part of support events to the music happening called EXIT Festival in Novi Sad.
On July 8th in “Synagogue”, visitors of Novi Sad could enjoy video work of Cedomir Drce and Slobodan Tisma “Opera Aperta”, concert of pianist Branka Parlic and piano duo of Gareis and Polh from Switzerland. Branka Parlic performed “Orpheus suite for piano solo” of Philip Glass and duo from Switzerland which was a premier performance: compositions of: Steve Reich, Gavin Bryars, John Adams and Aleksandar Rabinovic.
Opera “Opera Aperta” is composed from three parts: Aesthetic 1-3, Unvisual-36 times blue and The Fumes.
The video installation of Ivan Milinkov, specially produced for this occasion, was visual support for the concert of Branka Perlic. Milinkov used in his video the cadres from a movie “Orpheus” of Jean Cocteau, because concert of Branka Perlic reminded us of the anniversary, 120 years from Cocteau’s birth and 60 years from appearance of “Orpheus” movie.
Concert “Strictly minimal”-piano duo of Gareis and Polh started after Branka Parlic’s performance. Audience had rarely opportunity to listen one of the oldest Steve Reich’s composition “Piano phases” from 1967, as well as Gavin Bryars’s composition “My first Homage”, John Adam’s composition “Hallelujah Junction” and Aleksandar Rabinovic’s composition “Liebliches Lied”.
This program was organized and realized by support of Provincial Secretariat for Culture and The Citizens' Pact for South-East Europe.
