The Baroness of Cosmic Arithmetics
20 min.

The Baroness of Cosmic Arithmetics is a work in the form of a declamation inspired by the figure of Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven. The  German-born avant-garde Dadaist artist was also a poet who worked for many years in New York City and an early pioneer of sound poetry, drawing parallels between religious, scientific and sexual images.

The Baroness of Cosmic Arithmetics is part of NZZN (North-South-South-North) Festival, initiated by DE PLAYER and VROOOM and organised in collaboration with other Rotterdam-based organisations / venues that operate on the fringes of the Rotterdam subculture. NZZN seeks to map out and showcase the peripheral Rotterdam of leftfield music, sound art, improvisation, and performance art with a vibrant mix of international and local artists. This event is made possible with kind support of Popunie Rotterdam, City of Rotterdam Department of Culture, NFPK+, Mondriaan Fonds.
