Rehearsals Before the Demo



This work documents the chant rehearsals held in preparation for the demonstration at the Rackowiecka prison in Warsaw on the 2nd July 2016. The demonstration was organized in solidarity with the three Warsaw anarchists arrested on the night of May 23rd on charges of an alleged arson attempt of a police vehicle.

The rehearsals were necessary, in order to practice and prepare the chants for the performance on the day of the demonstration. The chants needed to be extraordinarily loud to be heard by the three anarchists inside the prison. Voices and sound have the power to connect people from a great distance and in return make them feel closer to each other. Passing over borders, moving beyond walls, sound connects the inside with the outside.
