Avgang 2017: 06 04 17
Roza Moshtaghi presenterer sitt avgangsprosjekt i master koreografi.
It appears with the head of a dog and the claws of a lion, and sometimes also with a human face. Like a looping story that passes from mouth to mouth, from eye to eye, and from body to body, it reproduces narratives of tyranny. Embodied in a few postures repeating themselves and appearing like a peacock, aware of the hidden colors.
This performance can be described as a research in visualizing reactions to the dialogues between structures, objects and organisms. More than being a deliberate act, the choreography is a result of this research process.
The photo book is part of a trilogy made together with Karen Eide Bøen and Bente Alice Westgård.
The booklet is an extension of the performance 06 04 17. The images are extracted from photo series by Golara Jahanian between 2015-2017, and selected in collaboration with the photographer. The restless feeling in her work; the dead moments after an explosion, an accident or a sudden laugh, has led to the desire to bring them together in this publication.
