WHO'D HAVE THOUGHT THAT SNOW FALLS


Performative Video Chor Klanginstallation

What do female voices from the East of Ukraine reveal beyond words? Developed in 2021, the installation searches for acoustic traces and the power of collective singing as a principle of survival. The voices, sounds and images of the Luhansk villages of Bilolutsk, Osynove and Horodyshche echo in the Church of St. Elizabeth in Berlin. In this space, also torn apart by the war, the singing is accompanied by a live performance by amateur Berlin singers who explore their own heritage and unique vocal expression. WHO THOUGHT THAT SNOW IS FALLING explores the voice as evidence of joy and fragility, human experience across generations and borders. Visitors are invited to pause in an immersive atmosphere or consider different points of view (listen).

With singers and dancers from the Luhansk villages Bilolutzk Lyudmyla Shulyak, Petro Chepelukha, Valentyna Derkach, Lyudmyla Horshkova, Oksana Hutnyeva, Lyudmyla Ilarionova, Tetyana Kandyba, Yuriy Kuznetsov, Yuriy Maksymenko, Anna Nevidoma, Nataliya Shepilova, Oleh Volkov, Tetyana Zaytseva // Osinove Ol’ha Bushlya, Lyubov Molochkova, Mariya Sahradova (†), Zinayida Skovorodka, Kateryna Tkachenko // Horodyschtsche Tetyana Hrabchuk, Lyubov Kornienko, Rayisa Shuhaylo, Svitlana Konovalova
