Jun 7 Tune Your Dial for Radio Silence by: Laura Kochman ShareFacbookTwitterEmail Radio Silence dinner, May 25, 2017. Amasi Restaurant, 1731 Cecil B. Moore Avenue. Photo by Steve Weinik. Less than eight weeks remain between us and the kickoff event for Radio Silence—a large-scale performance exploring the Iraqi diaspora with 90 minutes of music and food on Independence Mall, the birthplace of American democracy. The July 30 event curated by artist Michael Rakowitz will be simulcast on PhillyCAM TV, but if you’re there in person, you’ll hear the call of the Bulbul bird and taste traditional Iraqi food from Amasi Restaurant, listen to veteran stories from Warrior Writers, and get caught up in Iraqi refugees’ memories of an Iraq that, due to war and political unrest, no longer exists. The show will continue in a special radio event , interweaving a host of sonic memories and experiences (and species!) to create a soundscape of the contemporary refugee experience. If you’re as excited as we are, go ahead and tweet about it: Radio Silence by artist Michael Rakowitz & @MuralArts – live performance & radio series July 2017 bit.ly/MAPRadioSilence FULL PRESS RELEASE Last updated: Aug 4, 2017 Special Projects Related Events Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
