“Confiscated Properties: Architecture, Ideology, and Performance” aims to appropriate and permeate a confiscated property through a calendar of community-based performances.
The Great Learning Orchestra music collective (Stockholm) has invited UK-based composers Tony Harris and Barry Russell to form a calendar of participatory events and experimental music performances for confiscated properties in Palermo, from June to November 2018.
The project re-thinks the role of properties seized from organized crime, in relation to the history of the city, the protagonists of the counterculture, together with the organizations and self-run groups in Palermo over the last 40 years.
A series of preliminary events has accompanied the project since March 2017.
