There are no excuses for not playing music by female composers. For far too long, concert hall repertoires have been almost exclusively dominated by male composers, thereby depriving audiences of incredible music. One force that is working for more equal repertoire distribution in our concert halls and on other stages worldwide is the non-profit Association of Swedish Women Composers (Kvinnlig Anhopning av Svenska Tonsättare – KVAST). Kvast is now celebrating 10 years and we are proud to host the anniversary concert here at Konserthuset Stockholm. Marcela Lucatelli is honoured to be a part of this celebration presenting her performance ‘‘Speech of Maria Magdalena to her legions’’ at this wonderful occasion.

“A human being is spirit. But what is spirit? Spirit is the self. But what is the self? The self is a relation that relates itself to itself or is the relation’s relating itself to itself in the relation; the self is not the relation but is the relation’s relating itself to itself.” Søren Kierkegaard.

The human voice - that is more than just speaking and singing. It is an unrestricted mean of communication as an expression of the untold, as an object of desire for a sounding fetish on and off-stage, and a bearer of cultural identity and inevitably political statements from the intimate core of human body technology. In a half-day workshop, the Brazilian vocalist, performer and composer Marcela Lucatelli gives insight into various vocal techniques that she uses in her musical practice. Together we will improvise, explore connections between breath, voice and movement and discover new vocal potentialities.
