Geographically, Armenia belongs to Asia, and historically and culturally it is strongly influenced by Europe, and yet for the most part Armenia is unknown here in Europe. The project "Goodbye, Bird" would like to bring the novel of the same name by the Armenian author Aram Pachyan to the stage by means of words, dance, music, and the visual arts, and combine this with an insight into the current developments in the Armenian art scene. Aram Paychan and the artist Yeva Muradyan (film and animation, photography, painting) will establish the basic structures in April for the stage production, and then return to Armenia in order to continue working on the project. In September and October they will be at Villa Waldberta again to finish the project there with partners in Munich and to stage the performance.
