Wanderlust: An Evening of Poetry, Movement & Visuals by Azerbaijani Artist Elya Osmanova
June 12, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT$20
CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing) presents Wanderlust, an evening with Azerbaijani Artist Elya Osmanova in the award-winning White Room at CRS on June 12 at 7pm. Using multidisciplinary art forms such as poetry, movement & visuals, this traveling artist leads us through a journey to uncover the meanings we give to home & belonging.
What is home? What’s belonging?! Do we belong to the language that we speak or the language that we think?! While exploring all of these concepts, Wanderlust gives the space to the audience to be part of process of exploration and sharing as a community, as part of her ongoing project.
Tickets are $20 and are available online through Eventbrite and at the door (cash only) if not sold out. Proof of full vaccination is required to enter, no exceptions. Masks must be worn throughout. Seating is limited and includes seating on the floor.
Elya previously performed at CRS in the Dec 11, 2021 Paradise Laboratory concert by musicians Galen Passen (sitar) & gamin (piri & saenghwang), where she read text by playwright Mia Chung.
