“Čaralice” – Spells and Chants Dedicated to Nature

Songs to ward off evil
For audiences aged 15+

In less than a century, humankind has contributed to a mass extinction of living organisms and driven our planet to the brink of ecological disaster. We live on Earth but can’t seem to hear it! Our wise ancestors knew how to listen to the natural world and its cycles, worshipping nature and connecting with the natural environment through ritual songs. The music performance will thus conjure up the magic of sound, incantation and movement, as well as the resonant singing of our ancestors, brought back to life by Zvezdana Novaković ZveN and her vocal group.
