Nora Turato - Croatia / The Netherlands - 24 September - Nora Turato - Croatia / The Netherlands - 24 September
"I love the complaining, criticising, questioning, reflecting and reviewing passionately."
Croatian-born, Netherlands-based performer Nora Turato harnesses the versatility of language as an instrument in her absorbing spoken word displays that blur the line between contemporary music and performance art.
Nora Turato is a uniquely, versatile artist. A graphic design graduate of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and Werkplaats Typografie, who’s on her way to a prestigious Rijksakademie residency this December, Turato is also a skilled writer and has been making music since the ripe old age of 15. In fact, recording as Turato91, she released her debut Girls Gotta Look Out For Each Other Thats All just last year. But it’s as a performer that the Croatian-born multitalent has received most acclaim. From her perch in the middle of the room, Turato unleashes powerful salvos of poignant spoken word that challenge all manner of social convention. Dubbed ‘verbal vomit’ by herself and ‘avant-garde hip hop’ by admirers, her absorbing displays explore rhythm, cadence and flow, and harness language as sound to blur the line between contemporary music and performance art.
