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

Գիշեր | gisher, by artist Giorgia Ohanesian Nardin (they/them), 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 the theatre, audiences 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 Myddleton Square Garden’s to sit around a fire where the recorded audio responses of eight London-based artists will surround them as Nardin tends to the fire.

It’s a captivating and lyrical work, bravely exploring the impact of geopolitics through poetic movement and visuals. Գիշեր | gisher’s first performance in July 2020 coincided with the re-emergence of the conflict between Armenia and Turkey/Azerbaijan.

LIFT are thrilled to present this UK premiere, which forms a part of their festival LIFT 2022: Unexpected Perspectives. Find the full programme on LIFT’s website
