Unsound is working with local partners over 2016 and 2017 in an array of locations to create special Dislocation events. While most take place in cities in the former USSR, fostering special collaborative projects to be presented at Unsound Krakow, the festival is also returning to New York with a compact event to celebrate the importance of this city to Unsound’s development.
Unsound Dislocation: New York opens at the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center on June 16th with Elysia Crampton presenting a work that is part theatre and part live music performance called “Dissolution of The Sovereign: A Time Slide Into The Future”, while Alessandro Cortini of Nine Inch Nails presents “Sonnos”.
The program for other events has been assembled with longtime partners The Bunker and Sustain-Release, showcasing a broad range of contemporary dance music, from techno to strains of more leftfield and bass-oriented acts. Turin’s Club To Club have also collaborated with The Bunker and Unsound to create a Sunday afternoon program focused on the Italian New Wave.
The opening at the David Rubenstein Atrium is free of charge, while individual tickets are available to other events via the links below.
As for other upcoming Unsound: Dislocation projects, the festival will visit Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan and Batumi in Georgia in the second half of May, for events presented with Goethe-Institut.
