Moor Mother x LCO: The Great Bailout – Unsound Festival
Address: Krakow, Poland
A first time collaboration between Philadelphia based interdisciplinary artist Moor Mother and the London Contemporary Orchestra, The Great Bailout is free verse poem that acts as a non linear word map about colonialism, slavery and commerce in Great Britain and her commonwealth. Moor Mother is an alias of Camae Ayewa, well known to the Unsound audience from her solo show, a collaboration with Zonal (Kevin Martin and Justin Broadrick) and the band Irreversible Entanglements.
Unsound Festival is an annual music festival that takes place in Kraków, Poland, dealing with evolving and mutating forms of music, as well as related visual arts.
The theme of Unsound 2019 is Solidarity. At a time of widespread instability, solidarity is a word that belongs to no one group. It takes as a starting point the 30th anniversary of democratic elections in Poland, a result of protests that spread across Central and Eastern Europe. Thirty years on, the festival will explore what solidarity means today, in the context of the wider world and Unsound.
