"THE SONG OF A REFUGEE" PERFORMANCE

“The Song of a Refugee” is a musical performance of Armenian national songs. It is not only about geographical migration, but also about loss and longing for the homeland.

This performance was inspired by Heriqnaz Galstyan’s sculptural work, “Horovel”. The site-specific performance combines and erases the border between space, musician and dancer. At the end of the performance, Heriqnaz Galstyan’s artwork will be presented to the audience.

Sunday, June 17, 17:00 and 20:00
AGBU Armenia Gallery Space (2/2 Melik-Adamyan str.)

We kindly ask that guests arrive 15 minutes before the start of each viewing.

Free admission.
