Azer News - - Culture & Lifestyle - By Naila Huseynli

The per­for­mance will take place within the M.A.P fes­ti­val.

The artis­tic di­rec­tor of the the­ater, Mo­toi Miura adopts new bound­aries of tech­nique and di­rec­tors in his per­for­mances.

By de­lib­er­ately re­nounc­ing re­al­ism, he builds troupes' ex­er­cises and per­for­mances on im­pro­vi­sa­tions, and cre­ates in­tri­cate and com­plex scenes. Ap­ply­ing to clas­si­cal lit­er­ary sources, Miura also al­lows free speeches. He cre­ates a unique col­lage through mix­ing repli­cas of char­ac­ters, chang­ing the se­quence of scenes, and re­mov­ing many images in the per­for­mance.

YARAT is a not-for-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cated to nur­tur­ing an un­der­stand­ing of con­tem­po­rary art in Azer­bai­jan and to cre­at­ing a plat­form for Azer­bai­jani art, both na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally. Based in Baku, YARAT (mean­ing CRE­ATE in Azer­bai­jani) was founded by Aida Mah­mu­dova in 2011.

It re­al­izes its mis­sion through an on-go­ing pro­gram of ex­hi­bi­tions, ed­u­ca­tion events and fes­ti­vals. YARAT fa­cil­i­tates ex­change be­tween lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional artis­tic net­works in­clud­ing foun­da­tions, gal­leries and mu­se­ums.

YARAT com­prises YARAT Art Cen­tre, ARTIM Project Space, YARAT Stu­dios, YAY Gallery and an ex­tended ed­u­ca­tional and pub­lic pro­gramme.
