Alphabets of Flesh

New performance

Roshanak Morrowatian

"Because being in diaspora is to admit the contradiction of things, it is to put yourself trembling, distrusting the certainties and linear paths of beginning, middle, and end.”
- Luciane Ramos Silva

In the dance performance Alphabets of Flesh, choreographer and dancer <Roshanak Morrowatian> makes you feel what it is like to be a body in diaspora. Together with dancer Mami Izumi, she envisions the fragmented experience of time and space of people who have left their native land. The here and there and the now and then merge into memories and dreams.

What remains of your ancestry if you are displaced? What experiences – also from generations before you – are stored in your body? In a sensory journey through movements and images of the diaspora, Morrowatian searches for the feeling of home. Where and with whom is home? Can your body be your home? Do you need the past to define the ‘now’?

With dance, language, music and video art, Alphabets of Flesh creates a temporary home in which differences are embraced and uprooting is a source of strength.
