Kotra & Zavoloka – Wag the Swing
CD – Kvitnu
This production, in an elegant and special edition made of ecologic cardboard with golden tints, is entitled ‘Wag the Swing’. It’s the latest work by the Ukrainian artists Dmytro Fedorenko (Kotra) and Kateryna Zavoloka, and follow the steps of their previous experiments, continuing the personal exploration that they started some years ago, made of several performances and workshops at the most renowned international electronic music festivals.
