Roulette: Sonya Belaya - Три Сестры
Event by Roulette.
Roulette is pleased to present the first performance composer Sonya Belaya‘s year-long residency. Три Сестры (translated to three sisters) is a piece reflecting on the history of domestic violence against womxn in Russia. Inspired by the recent Khachaturyan sisters trial, Три Сестры reflects on the culture Belaya and her two sisters grew up in, the domestic abuse they survived, and the interconnected history of womxn’s trauma in her beloved homeland. It asks is it possible to discuss these issues without contributing to American Russophobia and seeks to imagine a world where examining cultural violence does not cancel out cultural beauty, and violence against womxn is universally punishable.
