A Place of Cizitizenship

by Irina Botea

A Place of Citizenship documents a collaborative performance with twelve Romanian street musicians living in Madrid.
After several exploratory workshops the musicians led a performance at the National Museum Reina Sofia. An anthem was created ‘on the spot’ through collaborative negotiations with the audience. The process encouraged the public to suggest words, phrases, ideas and sounds that might be included in a national anthem.
The process established a link between the Spanish audience and the Romanian performers, wherein the composing of a new national anthem for Romania, was ultimately transformed into the ‘anthem of the audience’.
