AREA - A documented uchronia: a radio piece produced by Anne Lepère
Thu 24 August 2023
By Anne Lepère
This special screening of the English subtitled version of Anne Lepère’s radio play will coincide with a broadcast of the piece on Radiophrenia.
Chimerical appearances in the Galician night.
Two mares surprise us.
Vivid and fleeting, they leave a trace in us.
From this appearance is born the desire to go back to the legend of the wild horses that populate Galicia.
This audio drama is about the connection between humans and horses and more specifically about a traditional practice that began four centuries ago in Galicia. This heritage is called: Rapa das Bestas (The Shave of the Beasts). This ritual involves cutting the manes of the wild horses who live free at the mountains in a semi-feral state and that are performed in the curros (enclosed which retain the horses) held in various locations in Galicia (Spain).
Anne Lepère is a Brussels-based artist, explores the relationships between various strains of sound design in her work: field recordings, radio drama, experimental music.
