to open myself, to scream

Composer Mary Kouyoumdjian’s multi-media work to open myself, to scream is inspired by the life of Roma artist Ceija Stojka, who survived three concentration camps to become a noted painter and writer. The performance combines visual projection by Syrian-Armenian artist Kevork Mourad with live chamber orchestra and electronic recording.
