Screening and performance

5 Outubro 2018 19h00

We are glad to present a performance by New York City-based interdisciplinary artist Muyassar Kurdi. Her work encompasses sound, extended vocal technique, performance art, movement, photography, and film. She has toured extensively in the U.S. and throughout Europe. A versatile improviser, Muyassar has composed and performed music for voice, harmonium, piano, lyre, autoharp, and theremin in both solo and collaborative environments. She currently focuses her attention to interweaving homemade electronic instruments and sculpture into her vocal and dance performances, stirring a plethora of emotions from her audience members through vicious noise, ritualistic chants, and meditative movements. 
At Zaratan she is also presenting “Song for Many Women”(2018), one of her recent audiovisual creations.
