ANA FINTIZARAK أنا في انتظارك

dance - music performance by Yalda Younes & Yasmine Hamdan (2009)

Une fois encore si j’entendais cete voix
totalement alors
mon coeur s’allègrerait

— Ishikawa Takuboku

A solitarty state in the face of a relentless, deaf, mute and blind power, “ana fintizarak” is an attempt to ressucitate tenderness in a climate of disquiet and missing. In a repetitive narrative lost between whispers, interruptions and the unspoken, this internal monologue draws on the melancholic, anguish impasse experienced in mourning, as well as the bittersweet fevered revolt against any eventual prospect of love.
A languid, elusive voice laments but also soothes and comforts an inconsolable body occupied by a withheld violence, with desire that still shines accross, sometimes.
