Dance and handkerchief belong together! In traditional Albanian dance swirls the handkerchief over the heads. A man with a European look, also put it in a jacket, lying on the face of deceased family members, serving as a love affair or a parental request for cleanliness. The piece by Gjergj Prevazi, inspired from the German writer Hertha Müller, explores through the handkerchief the handling of a young generation with their memories. Silk and paper, traditional and electronic music, folk and contemporary dance, combine to the questions of a young generation in search of their identity
 
 
Tanz und Taschentuch gehören zusammen! Im traditionellen albanischen Tanz wirbelt das Taschentuch über den Köpfen. Sie steckte sie auch in eine Jacke mit europäischem Look, liegt auf dem Gesicht verstorbener Familienmitglieder, diente als Liebespfand oder der elterlichen Aufforderung zur Sauberkeit. Das Stücke von Gjergj Prevazi, inspiriert von Hertha Müller, erkundet über das Taschentuch den Umgang einer jungen Generation mit ihren Erinnerungen. Seide und Papier, traditionelle und elektronische Musik, Folk und zeitgenössischer Tanz, verbinden sich zu den Fragen einer jungen Generation auf der Suche nach ihrer Identität.
 
 
Kërcimi dhe shamia i përkasin njëra tjetrës. Në vallen tradicionale shqiptare shamia lodron mbi kryet e kërcimtarëve. Gjithashtu ajo vendosej në xhaketën e e nje zoterie me pamje europiani, mbi fytyrën e familjarit kur ndërron jetë, shërbente si peng dashurie ose kërkesë prindërore për pastërti. Pjesa nga Gjergj Prevazi e inspiruar nga Hertha Müller, hulumton me anë të shamisë marrëdhënien e një brezi të ri me kujtimet e tyre. Mëndafshi dhe letra, muzika tradicionale dhe elektronike, vallja dhe kërcimi kontemporan gërshetohen me pyetjet e një brezi të ri në kërkim të identitetit te tij.
