A unique music show combining visual art and glaciology has been traveling through Central Asia to highlight the plights of global warming. NewEurasia’s Nik McCaren went to check it out as it. “The experience was quite moving,” he writes, “as though the glaciers have been lamenting to humanity and until now we have been deaf to hear them.”
Here are photos taken by Elzara Muzaffarova of Sunday’s performance of “Imitations of the Koran” at the Ilkhom Theater. To read more about the play and the rest of the opening, click here.
“Tashkent without Ilkhom would be like Paris without the Eifel Tower,” writes NewEurasia’s Nik McCaren about the Ilkhom Theater’s 37th season opening. Come check out the playbill, which includes a re-performance of “Imitations of Koran” in honor of the theater’s murdered founder and art installations by a group nicknamed the “Uzbek Banskies”.
Central Asian directors showed their films to a general audience on 8, 9 and 10 June in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in the “Ilkhom” theater, the former home of the murdered dramatist Mark Weil. Nikita Makarenko reports.
