To escape, to breathe, to keep silence" is a multimedia work that aims to reveal with art means a process of human self-identification in an imaginary "city environment".

The work consists from different culture layers with different means of expression -- folk and contemporary academy singing; violin play that combine "new virtuosity" of academy music and authentic impromptu manner of performance that is concentrated on deconstruction of city environment; multifunction assembly; electric music that is based on records of city and nature noises, synthesized timbres and samples of authentic singing. All these aim to reveal complicated relations between Individual and City.

What is the actual human environment? Urban accumulation of destroying power? A collection of different times cultures? A human shelter? A shelter of the very life? Three parts of the work "To escape, to breathe, to keep silence" are connected with initial images of movements, states, feelings that are immanently presented in human mind. What does an individual escape from?.. Where?.. What does his silence speak about?.. What about his breath?..
