THE RUSALKA CYCLE:
Songs Between the Worlds
Kitka with music by Mariana Sadovska
In Slavic folklore, Rusalki are the restless spirits of women who have died unjust, untimely, or unnatural deaths. They inhabit the waters, forests, and fields, luring people to them with their mesmerizing songs and wild laughter. Performed by the nine powerful vocalists of KITKA, together with percussionist Loren Mach and cellists Jess Ivry and Myra Chaney, The Rusalka Cycle is a riveting dream-like journey that weaves traditional Eastern European folk song and ritual together with original music by Mariana Sadovksa in a haunting and evocative contemporary theater production directed by Ellen Sebastian Chang. Come prepared to be enthralled, haunted and ultimately drawn into this beautiful realm between the worlds.
