iz (turk.) = trace, imprint, track, shimmer izle= following the trace also imperative of: to follow, to detect, to seek, to observe, to watch, to spectate, to look on.
I set off to find out what is said and not said in my own family and within the German-Turkish-Armenian web of relations. This account is about suspicions, about unknown places that seem familiar and about things we know but cannot fully grasp. What does to remember mean? From Kayseri, Istanbul, Beirut, London and Berlin I constructed my own narrative: a movement setting.

There are three characters entering the space, not knowing where they are. They are feeling uncanny, feeling strange but they exist in there. Will they be able to make the space their own or leave it as it is and go away?

Mj’asin is the Armenian word for “together”. The visual artist Silvina Der-Meguerditchian and the choreographer and dancer Jasmin İhraç embark on a search for what supposedly connects them: their Armenian roots. Walking through tradition and history, they come upon blind spots, absence and loss. Their unusual play with traditional symbols, techniques and folk dances invariably makes a connection to the present: will yesterday’s community remain today’s yearning?
Mj’asin is a production by Kultursprünge at Ballhaus Nauynnstraße gemeinnützige GmbH. The first production was funded by the intercultural project funding of the Land of Berlin. INSTALLATIONS AND PERFORMANCE: Silvina Der-Meguerditchian, CHOREOGRAPHY: Jasmin İhraç, ASSISTANCE IN CHOREOGRAPHY: Tümay Kılınçel, Julia Schunevitsch, DANCE AND PERFORMANCE: Jasmin İhraç, Tümay Kılınçel, Raisa Kröger, COMPOSITIONS by: Hanan EL Shamouty, Dzovinar Mikirditsian, DRAMATUGY: Lidy Mouw.
