Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is Modara. I’ll meet you there.
Rumi, 13th century
Trickster Orchestra’s festival for contemporary music, Modara, celebrates cultural transformation. Rumi’s idea of Modara is a place of intense encounter and dissolution of the self into something completely new. The festival reflects this utopian place of unity and presents 21st century transcultural music and revolutionary musicians that transcend boundaries and merge traditions, genres, and instruments into new musical experiences.
The festival begins with several improvisation sessions all over Berlin, before concluding with two days of concerts at Heimathafen, Neukölln.
