"In Haukadalur, the geysers have become surreal earth spirits under Mujila's hand, given voices by Zhao and finally given life by a formidable trio of performers. The Ukrainian soprano Viktoriia Vitrenko with a silvery timbre, expressive playing, counter Daniel Gloger incredibly sovereign in the registers from the lows to the highs and, in a delicately feminine costume, dancer Kai Chun Chuang, who affirmed the androgynous fairytale-ness of this transworld with every turn, every gesture."

The Ukrainian artist Viktoriia Vitrenko glides between speaking, screaming, singing and croaking in the programme called "Limbo". The opening "3 Songs" by the Polish composer Agata Zubel set the dramaturgical tone. The vocal part, which does without lyrics, seems almost existentialist, but its iridescence is all the more moving, which is intensified in an interesting way by the sound of the prepared piano. The clanging, plopping and grumbling of the piano creates a rich spectrum of colour. It is fascinating to observe how Viktoriia Vitrenko really consumes herself in the almost two-hour programme. She sings and accompanies herself on the piano and elevates the whole thing to a performance (directed by Titus Selge). The stage evokes memories of a prison cell with a barred window and a dirty toilet bowl. Wrapped in a blanket, Vitrenko initially crouches under the piano, crawls out and emerges as a living mummy, wrapped in white bandages. Little by little, she reveals herself, repeatedly exposing (made-up) injuries that go hand in hand with a political dimension. This becomes most apparent in Ying Wang's "Illuminations", in which a show trial in China and the Belarusian civil rights activist Maria Kalesnikava are shown in video clips. Wistfulness spreads at the end of Maxim Shalygin's song cycle "Songs of Youth". Echoes of traditional folk art characterise the seven songs with their melancholy gesture, which leads purposefully to the concluding "Agnus Dei", which is designed as a lament with a great final climax.

Perhaps the most lasting impression at the festival, however, was left by Viktoriia Vitrenko's solo performance "Limbo". Not only because the Ukrainian pianist, singer and performer combined several song cycles into a complete work of art. The intense performance also included a video showing Maria Kolesnikova at one of the demonstrations in Minsk. She and Vitrenko know each other well; she dedicated this moving evening to her. Towards the end, she can hardly hold back her tears. Kolesnikova's spirit is present here every minute. No one knows at the moment how she is doing in prison. But she is not forgotten.
