NARVA : TOMORROW, collective actions

Kohvik No2, TASUTA Narva, TASUTA

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 1 | Launch
• The project team will introduce the events programme to the participants from
Narva.

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. The programme 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.
Narva: Tomorrow events will unfold the creative process behind Eugene Birman’s work and focus
on such practices as participation, collaboration and critical thinking.

Collective Action 2 | Participation
• What was Narva? What is Narva? What will Narva become? The citizens of Narva
share their views.

Following the launch event, we invite people from across the city to contribute their views,
anonymously and without any self-censorship, about their city, past, present, and future.
We ask, what was Narva? What is Narva? What will Narva become? and invite any
perspective, whether it be specific memories from the past or hopes/fears about the
future, ten seconds, or ten minutes. These recordings will be transcribed and in the future
become part of a new work paired with Russia: Today that will tour worldwide.

Registration for the event is required:
