In this duet between vocalist/physicalist and percussionist (vibraphone and untuned objects), Medea meets Bjork, Tom Waits, Nina Simone, Menotti and Le Guin, playing at the outer limits, compelled to upheave it all.
With ‘Unravel_Reckoning’ Elissa, Susan, Margaret and Gina continue their creative collaboration, established with ‘Fragments’ (La Mama 2017).
