The audience may visit the exhibition titled My Heart Is Like Those Ruined Houses: The Life and Music of Gomidas Vartabed in the foyer before and after the performance free of charge. The exhibition was prepared by GALERİ BİRZAMANLAR.

A journey through the life story of Gomidas, a musician and music researcher who lived during the Ottoman period and has vastly influenced Armenian, Ottoman and world culture... The audience will meet Gomidas in the mental hospital where he spent his final years, and lead by an imaginary sheep in the artist’s mind, will travel from Kütahya to Eçmiyadzin, then to Berlin, Paris and Istanbul. We will witness the moments when this unique voice, this great artist whose ‘voice is heard on the sea coast,’ explores both himself and his music. As we listen to the songs he collected from the Armenian countryside, which he calls a ‘box of music’, the story of his deportation from Istanbul with Armenian intellectuals in 1915, and the church’s attitude when he decides to become a musician, through Gomidas Vartabed’s voice, the character will be accompanied by Lusavorich* Chorus at times. The play will be staged both in French and Turkish, the audience will be able to choose their preferred version.
