ՄԻԱՍԻՆ Mj'a sin - Verflechtungen
"Mj’a sin" is the Armenian word for "together". The visual artist Silvina Der-Meguerditchian and the choreographer and dancer Jasmin İhraç embark on a search for what supposedly connects them: their Armenian roots. Walking through tradition and history, they come upon blind spots, absence and loss. And their unusual play with traditional symbols, techniques and folk dances invariably makes a connection to the present: will yesterday’s community remain today’s yearning? Where is the resistance in cross-stitch and lockstep? What are fragments and documents of our appropriation? The multimedia performance, consisting of sound, objects, installations and dance, makes use of the notion of synchronicity and opens up a new space for the different perspectives.
