[Repeated from Friday 8pm.] Today: "Inanna" is a new and unique take on the oldest known story in the world by Mikael Öberg and Lee Berwick. This hour long collaboration explores the origins of duality – life and death, day and night, summer and winter – and tells the story of an all powerful goddess, whose desire for power, love and adventure knows no bounds. The stories of Inanna are some of the most ancient in recorded history and were written down on clay tablets about 4000 years ago. The source material consists of single unordered episodes, many of them fragmented, leaving room for interpretation. This recording, also released via Digidub this week, is a version of a stage piece that Lee and Mikael have performed live at venues and festivals around Scandinavia and the UK, in collaboration with visual artist Daniel Rudholm.
