Luca Piovesan, accordion & Maarten Stragier, guitar present SHIFTING CITIES featuring new music by
Mauricio Pauly (Costa Rica/UK)
Michelle Lou (US)
Santiago Diez-Fischer (Argentina/Switzerland)
Shifting Cities is an evening-length uninterrupted set, in which music by Michelle Lou, Mauricio Pauly, and Santiago Diez-Fischer offers a look through the eyes of the displaced. It explores the system shock of relocation, but also its revealing potential for human creativity.
Leaving the homeland happens slowly: a surreptitious force that clamps the umbilical chord and renders you a citizen of nowhere.
Time unmoors from becoming; nowhere becomes every-place; and the world’s cities become ever-shifting landscapes of communal endeavor.
