Let’s take a moment and imagine that we are all DIPPED IN GOLD is a performative instrumental-vocal affair traverses the spectrum between masculine and feminine folkloristic forms and actions, as represented in the Georgian cultural heritage and in that of the “contemporary dance”, in order to reexamine historical-ethnical, private, and aesthetic archetypes. The event “takes place” in the imagined Caucasus Mountains, as a hybrid trio that functions as a quintet: Three women: Georgian, Tatarian-Russian, and Syrian-German imagine the “stage arena” as gold, wearing their masculinity and rephrasing the male folklore in their bodies, next to the instrumental apparatus – The Drum Set. The experience seeks to produce an audial-visual environment that will construct a deconstruction for ethnical and periodical icons related to the “screaming idea”.
We revivify and celebrate memories rooted in tradition, adjacent to the current knowledge and technique acquired by our bodies, asking the songs of the western drums to change their spots and return to their homeland – the East.
