RENOVATION (Virginities 2)
with Alexander Iezzi and Gaile Griciute
Auditorium, CNAC Magasin, Grenoble

"A first time can mean anything if you're specific enough". With RENOVATION, Ivan Cheng presents a new installment of 'Virginities', a series of performances that suggest subjectivity, like real estate, to be passed through possession. With the first installment in 2020 staged in OCCII, one of the last venues for underground music in Amsterdam, the second brings noise drummer Alexander Iezzi and prepared pianist Gailė Griciūtė together with Cheng to the auditorium of Le Magasin. Garments by Good and Bad (Marina M. Kolushova, Victor Stuhlmann, Ossi Lehtonen).
