Eartha’s Guide of Everyday Living, or how to become a super hero


Afro-american singer performer Eartha Kitt as Catwoman in the 1960s white, male TV series ‚Batman’ was the trigger to make this show. We found her to be an iconic figure of female empowerment which took us, six white female artists, on individual journeys making 4 chapters, gradually finding a collective super power on the way:
we transcend our musical instruments to weapons, we ignite non-human energies as hybrid beings between humans and animals, we change our musical reality with linguistic actions, we examine the reality behind the system ‚machine’ and invent the antithesis to it.

N.E.W. emerged from the Composer Performer Ensemble Les Femmes Savantes founded in 2005. In the spectrum of new music, jazz, electronics, improvisation, sound art, performance, each musician of the trio develops her own artistic language in singular as well as collective authorship. For Eartha's Guide to Everyday Living N.E.W are working for the first time with sound artist and composer Kaffe Matthews, visual artist Katharina Ernst and media artist Tina Wilke.
