Metamorphic Orchestra performing “Metamorphic songs” (Serbia/Austria/France)

Over the past few years, Goethe Institute’s project Metamorphic Songs has built a network of artists and researchers from different countries. Through workshops, presentations, lectures and concerts they have been exploring and presenting different instances of songs’ migration through cultures; the history of their travel, the changes in their features and function, but also their personal stories, secret connections or confronted ideologies behind them. One of the outcomes of the project was the Goethe Institute’s Collection of Metamorphic Songs with diverse examples from across the world.

As part of the project of Metamorphic Songs in Serbia, a group of international and local musicians formed the Metamorphic Orchestra in an attempt to add local examples to this extraordinary Collection and to give these songs a new “metamorphic opportunity” by performing them on stage. Metamorphic Orchestra is open for the songs’ newest “will” and cases of metamorphosis in the whirl of today’s turbulent events and histories. The concert at the 24th edition of Belgrade Ring Ring festival is their premiere.
