Enjoy a baroque recital with an unorthodox accompaniment. Soprano Bernadeta Astari and the Touki Delphine music-collective interpret the arias of Handel, Monteverdi and Purcell in an absurd living room inspired by the late-1970s Encyclopedia of the Modern Housewife. That’s why this musical installation consists of not only electronic instruments, but household appliances and simple cooking equipment as well.
