NARVA : TOMORROW, collective actions


Narva: Tomorrow is a programme of public events called collective actions. The events bring
together international and local participants in a series of discussions and workshops around the
highlight event — the world premiere of the documentary opera Russia: Today by composer
Eugene Birman. Employing verbatim as a method, the opera explores the phenomenon of voice as
an instrument and as a means of expression, both in musical and social realms. The collective
actions will engage with Narva’s local context and seek to create a safe space for sharing multiple
perspectives, mutual understanding, finding inspiration and new meanings together.
Collective Action 6 | Open Rehearsal

• ‘Russia: Today’ Open Rehearsal with Argentum Ensemble

The Argentum Ensemble — formed of Latvia’s best singers from the Latvian Radio Choir
and State Choir LATVIJA — will perform for the very first time together, but first, they will
open their preparation process to local singers, musicians, and anyone interested in the
process of rehearsing and singing at a professional level. At the end of the rehearsal, the
young conductor, Aivis Greters, winner of Latvia’s Grand Music Award, will take questions
from the audience about the rehearsal process as well as the situation of the musician
today in the pandemic era.

Narva: Tomorrow is a programme of public events called collective actions.
The reference to the name of the famous conceptual artist group from the Soviet
underground is no coincidence. The programme explores participation as an artistic and
social strategy for creating the now, and thus, for building the future.

Registration for the event is required:

Free entrance, a valid covid health certificate must be presented, i.e., one of three:

a) vaccination passport (the last dose must have been administered according to the time specified by the manufacturer);
