  "abstract": "<p><strong>Folk Oratorio <em>Rivers of our Being</em></strong></p>\n\n<p>The oratorio was created as a creative research by practice output as part of the European Union-funded Horizon 2020 CoHERE project (the project seeks to identify, understand and valorise European heritages, engaging with their socio-political and cultural significance and their potential for developing communitarian identities). It was developed in partnership with Newcastle University, Heriot-Watt University and the Latvian Academy of Culture.</p>\n\n<p><em>Rivers of our Being</em> proposes a celebration of the diversity of European musical traditions: taking its inspiration from the rivers of Europe, the piece invites audiences to have a unique auditory journey across different European musical traditions. Intertwinned with reflexive texts from CoHERE authors&rsquo; works and other sources, musical construction provides additional meanings to the established contexts of folk music and initiates reflexion on such topics as culture and identity, identity and performativity, &ldquo;others&rdquo; as a threat to identity, populism and multiculturalism, cultural heritage and local identity.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Music</strong>: Valdis Muktup\u0101vels</p>\n\n<p><strong>Text</strong>: traditional, Rabindranath Tagore, Hamish Henderson, Ullrich Kockel</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>",
