an other world
Netherworld | Valentina Vella
Performance, Saturday, September 30
Doors open at 6:30pm; performance starts at 7pm
Duration: approximately 50 minutes
Join us for Valentina Vella's first full live performance of Netherworld, an electronic album of sonic poetry about personal, existential and planetary crises. Weaving together the literary and the utterly mundane, it's vulnerable, funny and at times even danceable.
Valentina Vella makes autofictional work about precarity, mental health, love and post-capitalist imaginaries. She centers narrative and the poetic word while exploring the way the body, sound, and rhythmical patterns modulate, enrich and sometimes contradict language in performance. She holds an MA in English literature from Roma Tre University and an MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts and Media from Columbia College Chicago. She lives in Rotterdam.
