SOLASTALGIA is a science fiction musical. A 48-hour long ritual where you let yourself be enrolled by the sect Ma-Ma. It is an invitation into a micro universe where you sink into the sound of a world on the other side of a climate collapse.
The sect Ma-Ma is a nomadic group seeking collective catharsis out of the penetrating state, solastalgia, – the feeling of being homesick even though you are home. A feeling spreading across the world. They do this though song, the vibration of the voice and mythological stagings You are essential for the success of the ritual which can only be caried out right now at this unique time after multiple apocalypses.
Throughout the 48 hours you can come and go as you wish. The piece is an installation where you are free to let yourself be caried away and go explore Ma-Ma’s universe, go check out their home. You are welcome to stay for the full length of the installation or you can stay for an hour. It is up to you.
Solastalgia is created by artist and film creator Madeleine Kate McGowan, composer and cellist Cæcilie Trier and composer and vocalist Soho Rezenejad.
