08.03.17—20:00    MIRY Contemporary: Giusy Caruso - ReOrient MIRY Concert Hall concert

Giusy Caruso is Italian, but this sparkling young musician is looking eastwards. Her ReOrient research includes dance-associated selections from Jacques Charpentier's 72 Etudes Karnatiques, inspired by South Indian ragas. Immersing herself in India's Carnatic musical tradition, Caruso asks what, then, is the impact of a Western training? Is authenticity possible? Caruso’s is a reorientation of significance, in which dancers, musicians and audiences all lose track of the North Star.
