Move from film to fireside to explore ideas of belonging and conflict.

Գիշեր | gisher,  by artist Giorgia Ohanesian Nardin, is a live work and video performance that touches on ideas of geography, the body, identity, heritage and conflict. Filmed and mostly written in Armenia, Գիշեր | gisher is a piece of two halves. Starting in a theatre, audiences will experience a collage of sound and film. Then, echoing the oral traditions of SWANA (South West Asian, North African) communities, they will move outside to sit around a fire and listen to the recorded audio responses of eight London-based artists. It’s a captivating and lyrical work whose first performance in July 2020 coincided with the re-emergence of the conflict between Armenia and Turkey/Azerbaijan.
