Procession of the Russian cruiser Aurora on the day of the centennial of the Great October Socialist Revolution
If you think 3 days is too little, you can start the festival one day earlier with this art performance by artist collective eredovoe udozhestvo Wednesday 25th at 17:00 at the Art Academy followed by music by Roman Osminkin, Anastasia Vepreva and Anton Comandiroff at 21:00 at Kurant Visningsrom.
“A spectre is haunting Europe — the spectre of communism.” These words by Karl Marx are as relevant today as ever. In October 25, 1917 Russia was the place of the world’s first Socialist Revolution.
According to the mythology formed in the Soviet period, the Russian cruiser Aurora on the Neva River gave a blank shot as the signal to storm the Winter Palace in Petrograd. In Roman mythology, Aurora was the goddess of the morning dawn, bringing daylight to the gods and the people. This shot marked the birth of the idea of a future World Revolution. Despite the fact that today we are far from universal equality and brotherhood, the utopia of building Communism in the whole world is needed by modern humanity as never before! After all, fearing for their present, people abandon the future.
Therefore, exactly 100 years later, on October 25, 2017, as a sign of memory of the world’s first socialist revolution, the artistic cooperative “eredovoe udozhestvo” from the city of the 3 revolutions will pass through the streets of the city of Tromsø with a model of the cruiser Aurora, welcoming Norwegian workers with revolutionary marches and workers’ songs.
Followed by the performance there will be a revolutionary techno set by Roman Osminkin, Anastasia Vepreva and Anton Comandiroff. “TECHNO / POETRY” cheerfully balances from mocking Russian folk to gothic electronics, from dance hardcore to mechanistic disco. ” If you haven’t mastered formal language, dance however you can, don’t think about anything ” – declares the Petersburg coop. “TECHNO / POETRY”. Roman Osminkin and Anton Commandiroff recently held a spontaneous presentation of the new album alongside the local police station, and it describes the modus operandi of this group well. Techno and poetry are put into the name of the cooperative by the CAPSLOCK – it’s not so much the music making of techno in combination with poetry, but the play/performance in techno and poetry. Roman Osminkin’s texts is a hypertrophied salad of citations from social networks, philosophical books and imaginary combat leaflets of left-minded revolutionary organizations. Anton Commandiroff responds with the same undeveloped and deconstructed music. This disco fools in the library.
