The SCRIABIN SONATAS Reimagined, Part 1 FILM

The SCRIABIN SONATAS Reimagined, Part 1 Final Performance + Film Release!

Hello Friends,

I hope you have had a very bright summer, full of vibrant and positive impressions!

I am more than happy to announce that the cinematic version of the project “The SCRIABIN SONATAS Reimagined, Part 1” has been successfully released together with the final performance of the project at the Schouwburg Hengelo Theater in the Netherlands on September 7, 2019. The project combines my interpretation of the first Five Piano Sonatas by Alexander Scriabin along with artistic video collages created by my collaborator Arletta Elst, with Planet Earth as the main subject matter. We wanted to artistically represent the beauty of our planet VS the destruction that occurs because of the human impact and bring awareness to the environmental issues in our world.

I am tremendously grateful to Arletta Elst for the production of the film, as well as to the entire Intertwining Arts team for organizing and promoting this work, and to our friends and supporters, who contributed to our organization in any way. The project is officially closed.

Interview with our Philosophy Advisor Dilectiss Liu

Today we are very happy to share a very interesting and profound interview with our very own Dilectiss Liu! Anastasia Panova, specially for Interwining Arts.

Q: How did you meet the Intertwining Arts team?

I was at the end of my studies in Canberra during the autumn of 2014, when the second Australian International Chopin Competition took place. There I had met Elina, and we exchanged our thoughts on Chopin and his artist compatriots. The continuation of these exchanges marked the beginning of our first Intertwining Arts project “Chopin: A Letter Through the Parisian Years”.
