Katarina Zdjelar often employs the rehearsal as a working method to explore the voice as a subject and substance. For this film she brought together four musicians for an improvisational interpretation of a text written by poet Athena Farrokhzad, ‘Europe, Where Have You Misplaced Love?’. The aim of the improvisation is not so much to arrive at a final performance, but rather to keep the range of possibilities open. One by one the musicians take control and then let it go again just before arriving at a common melody, at which point doubts or another voice steer the process in a different direction. It becomes a continuous search in which a multiplicity of interrelating voices coexists. This approach adds a layered interpretation to Farrokhzad’s reflections: https://lithub.com/athena-farrokhzad-europe-where-have-you-misplaced-love/ (accessed 01.02.2019).
