  • Installation / Performance

In Unknown, I Live With You The Airport Society group stages a true opera installation inspired by the poems of Afghan women. The female voice striving for peace and resisting any form of patriarchal system is interpreted by singers, dancers, a string quartet and live electronic group. This universal message of peace and freedom merges the dramatic power of opera with the impact of socially committed art form in an unusual, deep format.
