CITADEL

Here I am exploring my cultural identity, an Armenian undoubtedly Christian, born in Tehran and rooted in Europe for forty-five years. Citadel is a journey in exploration within my cultural identity.

Citadel is a cluster where bodies of the interpreters assume their existence. By focusing and exploring the body meticulously through my choreographic work, utilizing the body as an articulated instrument of power and communication, exploring my ethnic identity.

The dancers became a part of Citadel, each one a civic body becoming a constituent of Citadel, in this manner a fictional nation was born. Thus “Citadel” becomes a commodity, an expansive gateway channel to the spectator, debating the importance of political narrative.
