The project conveys the artist’s ironic confrontation with her name and identities which have changed countless times throughout her life for different reasons. Ayrin Ersoz reflects these atrophic moments in a performance of interactive video, music and dance inspired by Calvino, Galeano and Kundera. Denying the direct gaze and all forms of representation on stage, the performance offers the audience a chance of self-confrontation.
Written by Ayrin Ersoz, inspired by the texts of Eduardo Galeano, Herakleitos, Italo Calvino, Jacques Lacan, Michel Foucault, Milan Kundera, Tomris Uyar; by the Old Testament, by the condition of the world and of herself.
