Silvia Ziranek UNSUNG SONGS
UNSUNG SONGS is a series of poetic ballads written by Silvia Ziranek for multiple voices to perform. Over a period of 9 months Silvia will engage a group of women in Wandsworth to rehearse, record and perform a selection of the SONGS.
3 taster workshops will take place in March 2019, followed by a series of rehearsals, culminating in a recording session and the production of a special edition pink vinyl record. Each participant will receive a copy of the record and will be invited to take part in a performance in Wandsworth to mark the launch of the record, scheduled for September 2019.
UNSUNG SONGS offer a take on being female that is witty, empowering, intelligent, reflective, poetic and searching. The SONGS are humorous, colourful, engaging, questioning, accessible and uncompromising. They describe laughter, love, gusto, dust on the toothbrush, laundry, lolling, communication and the lack of, the hope of (emotional) survival, desperation, exuberance, acquisitions as security, maternal and financial anxiety, guilt, gilt, endeavour.
