Kozmice Bird Meadows, Matiční dům, Opava

PERFORMERS: Peter Cusack, Michal Kindernay, Magdaléna Manderlová, Lucie Páchová, Martin Režný, Tomáš Šenkyřík, Šárka Zahálková

We invite you to the fourth installment of the project by Magdaléna Manderlová and Michal Kindernay, where the artists explore the soundscapes along the Opava River and its surroundings.

As part of the project, two exhibitions took place at Galerie Cella in 2021-22, the publication “Po proudu zvuku” was released, we published the sound online map “Zvuky Opavy” (, and organized a field excursion “Zvuková citlivost v terénu”. In 2023, Magdaléna and Michal curated the Pohyb – Zvuk – Prostor festival for the first time, which they relocated to Kozmické ptačí louky, and subsequently presented the project together with German partners in Leipzig.

The program’s dramaturgy is conceived as a chain of interconnected events. It takes the form of participatory listening exercises, concerts, and performances. The invited artists have created new works closely related to the given location.

May 1st, Wednesday
Meeting Point: Kozmice Bird Meadows, observatory (49.903389, 18.135948)
15:00–18:00 – BECOMING A KOZMIC EAR I. / workshop with Šárka Zahálková
Workshop on why it makes sense to sharpen our senses. Instead of observing with our eyes, we will tune in our ears and give more space to our own hearing. We will listen to the surrounding environment and the materials that shape it. The found material will be delicately transformed into the foundation of cosmic ears. These will later help us perceive the world around us in a slightly different way.
The workshop is open to anyone regardless of age and will take place outdoors, so dress accordingly.
