A unique audio-visual performance which invites you to discover the depths of the Earth by the rhythmic beats of the sounds of nature and its magnificent images.

Focusing on the changes we are going through as humanity, but also about the deep essences we have in common as humanity, this AV performance aims to to pass on the call of the Earth for change and for a more conscious approach to it as well as to ourselves.

The Earth entangles different genres. It is built upon Ivana Mer’s album Earth (which was nominated for the Radio Head Awards as the album of the year in the world music folk category) and develops it further. Especially for this AV, visual artist Mária Júdová creates stunning video projections, artist Katarína Caková takes care of a special scenography, while the workshop of Daniela Danielis WNOOZOW weaves the hand-woven costume. The blurred boundaries between genres become even more fluid, so that their current takes you to the surprising and remote corners of this unique musical and visual universe.
