Trying to find "a quick way" for survival is the base for the performance "Vegetlization. Femenization. Musicalization", which Irina Gulyakina showed during the finnissage of the exposition, on the anniversary of Chernobyl's accident. Performance's title is connected to the works by St. Hidegard of Binengen, theologian, botanist, painter and musician. Hildegard lived in XII century in Germany and viewed the world as a "shipwrecked ship". Also, she had proposed a survival guide as development of self-healing and regeneration inherent in botanical world and women. Collective healing was imagined by nun through musical experience, which embodies consonance of human souls in relation to each other and the Other. Hildegard considered that people's identity is similar to an open wound, that the world and connection with other people are often destructive. Nevertheless, she preached that a place of destruction could be a place of healing for a human, sprouting like a flower, through its pain.
This complex model was explored and presented by curator Irina Gulyakina, singer Vasya Krasnoyarova and invited performers, in their vocal-participatory project. In half lighted space performers were consumed by their own, very personal autistic dance. The vocal improvisation by Vasya Krasnoyarova, constructed out of Hildergard's musical citations, indicated a very subtle connection among participants. There was no development in the action itself, but emerging theatrical impact of the melody has taken over the performers – but led to nothing. To feel the process of growing through grey dead space, accept possibility of this growth - it was feasible in the moments of silence and overall out of synchronisation state. Nevertheless, it was possible.
