Together with 20 musicians from Berlin from various religious backgrounds – Sufis, Jews, Christians, Muslims – artist Georgia Sagri composes a new musical and movement performance employing imitation and repetition of familiar beliefs’ movements on a path towards a future unified belief system. For Sagri, the performance is treated as a science fiction book in which monotheistic ceremonies become subjects of a “meta-religion”, which can perhaps only through their unification as gestures propose a new approach to faith and in extent to religion. This eight-hour piece, performed by the artist and her musical collaborators, visualizes the possibility of a non-individualistic approach to religion and defines the “materials” of faith by detaching them from their original significance, constantly deconstructing and exposing their micro-movements and transitions. A website aspect of the project will allow visitors to view the performance online and share their comments as it unfolds.
