SIMULTAN FESTIVAL XV — UNSTABLE STATE OF THINGS

11  — 19.07 2021 / MultipleXity 

The 16th edition of the SIMULTAN Festival will take place between September 11-19, 2021 in Timișoara, Romania under the motto ‘Unstable State of Things’.

Life, as we knew it, is changing radically and probably someday will take a different form, providing a good opportunity to test ourselves and develop our ability to adapt to reality. It is important to understand not only what is happening, but also what is the potential of this transformation of the world following this crisis. The most difficult thing is to tolerate uncertainty and the unknown… in a world where we have come to believe that we have control, but nature proves otherwise.  Learning to tolerate insecurity and the unknown brings us closer to our human condition, fragile and precarious as it is. And the sign is, perhaps, to become human again, that is, to allow ourselves to be vulnerable, fragile, dependent on each other. It is a time to look to the future and imagine what we want our lives to look like from now on.

SIMULTAN is an annual festival dedicated to interdisciplinary arts – emerging media projects, experimental music and audio-visual and sound projects, in order to support new forms of artistic expression. The festival program includes live audio-visual performances, video art screenings, exhibitions, conferences and workshops,  which some themes and methods are: stylistic eclecticism, the relationship between man and automation, recycling or ecological themes, dry lyricism, the fusion of acoustic and electronic instruments, the expanded cinema, the jovial live sound collage, as well as the reflection on the political valences of sound.
