      ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
      In a day and in life, denizens are in search for space to inhabit, for
      place to belong, for time to possess, for a moment to rest, traveling
      far from, and ultimately returning to the self the bodies they are born
      into. The performance "Denizen" is influenced by Armenian Cinema
      masterworks by Sergei Parajanov and Artavazd Peleshian (specifically by
      Peleshians film "Seasons" (1979)). It is an homage to Armenia, one of
      the oldest civilizations in the world. Images appearing in "Denizen"
      were captured last fall in the Northern Lori region of Armeniain some of
      the exact locations where "Seasons" was shot.

      Formally, "Denizen" is a work that uses film as a starting point. In
      the performance, five distinct personalities - denizens - mold movement,
      light, images, sets and sounds to orchestrate a cycle of poetic haikusto
      transmit the mythical and ritualistic qualities of a land and its
      people.
