اجنبی ملن Ajnabi Milan (Strangers’ Union)
Performance: April 3, 2019, 6:30 PM
As part of Unraveling Collective Forms exhibition, Fanaa led a procession the night of the opening from the Hollywood Blvd overpass (101 Fwy) to LACE. In the form of a shimmering procession, this street performance celebrates people that organize movement, that walk out, that make themselves visible together. A surrealist/situationist procession of SWANA (South West Asian & North African) diaspora with a message addressing alienation and inclusivity. It is an ode to those whose long and complex journeys challenge ideas of migration, home, and land. A procession that unionizes us, strangers and aliens—an invitation to walk and be present together.
The public is invited join the procession.
The Performance will start at 6:30 pm on the Hollywood Freeway overcrossing where the 101 meets Hollywood Blvd, between N Bronson Ave and N Wilton Pl. The performance will end at LACE.
Performers: Haik Adamian, Sasha Ali, Luay Al-Derazi, Sherin Guirguis, Khushboo Gulati, Maryam Hosseinzadeh, Asiya Mir, Amitis Motevalli, Hushidar Mortezaie, Perwana Nazif, and Anuradha Vikram.
