Denizen (2007-2010) for KINO Dance
Described as "Geo-psychic" by the Boston Herald's critic Ted Bale, Denizen is an expanded cinema performance inspired by the masterworks of the great Armenian filmmakers Sergey Parajanov and Artavazd Peleshian. Denizen is our artistic response to their films ñ our way to engage in an imaginary conversation with these filmmakers about the stories they tell, the places they portray, the rituals their characters embody as well as the creative principles they used to make their films.
Notable recorded a variety of instruments and vocalists, including NounÈ Karapetian (vocals), Ed Babroudi (dhol), Zori Babroudi (duduk), and Vahe Ghahraman (vocals) for this production.
