Old Power Station, Ljubljana
part of Myths and Medusas, City of Women
series of four performances
Modal Medley in Four Acts (Exoneration from Tradition) is an ambitious attempt at a mini-retrospective-on-stage crossing over to durational performance by Lala Raščić. The artist performs The Eumenides (2014), EE-0 (2018), GORGO (2020), and Počimalja – She Who Starts the Song (2022) back-to-back, delivering a combination of Greek myth, anarchist ideology, female rage, folkloric forms, and good old monodrama.
This medley of four performances maps Lala Raščić’s body of work, research, and interests of the last decade that has finally made the full circle from Balkan oral poetry to chthonic Greek goddesses, all in pursuit of exoneration from tradition.
