A digital production presented by the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts
Home Within is an emotional accounting of home in a time of conflict. An audio-visual performance conceived by Syrian composer and clarinetist Kinan Azmeh and Syrian Armenian visual artist Kevork Mourad, the result is an impressionistic reflection on the unity of loss, longing, and the impact of tragedy on our sense of ‘home.’ Rather than follow a narrative, the artists document home within specific moments in Syria’s recent history, using the counterpoint between image and sound to establish a sense of sustained urgency and continued hope for their homeland and communities around the world.
Founded by Yo-Yo Ma and now led by Artistic Director Rhiannon Giddens, the “vibrant and virtuosic” (Wall Street Journal) Silkroad Ensemble is a broad-ranging collective of instrumentalists on the leading edge of radical cultural collaboration. Appearing in many configurations and settings in a wide range of projects, the musicians of Silkroad Ensemble hail from more than 20 countries, drawing on a rich tapestry of traditions to create a new musical language.
Filmed in the spring of 2021.
