Gendering Memories of Iraq,
a Collective Performance by Hayv Kahraman

Join us for a transformative performance orchestrated by Iraqi born artist Hayv Kahraman that will reflect on concepts of diaspora, immigration, and community.

As Kahraman states:

“My process begins by narrating personal memories that unarguably are specific yet could be part of a collective history. The self is used as a formal/lingual vehicle to communicate and share the life/lives of the other/s. I am concerned with the multitude not the self. This is not only my story. It can be the story of more than 5 million people within the Iraqi diaspora or any diaspora. I do not intend to generalize. It is merely a re-creation of what I have experienced and what I see people around me experiencing. This is her story but it is also her and her and her and her story.”
