The Screamer

To scream in Armenia and be heard on a square in the center of Geneva:
an opportunity given to anybody thanks to a microphone on the Square
Charles Aznavour in the heart of downtown Yerevan. An artistic
performance is organized every evening at 6pm (GMT +1) from September
3 to 11. When nobody shouts, speaks or sings, the background noises of
the public space will any time be perceptible.

To Be Heard

The Screamer is a device for one way communication. Such a
communication is naturally perceived as a scream or a howling. In the
heart of a festival animating the Genevan cultural life, the Screamer
opens a space of reflection on the relations between the centers and
the peripheries of the world. But due to the reversal of the habitual
communication flows, it also touches on the good old fantasy of the
Orient: in France, one burns “Armenian paper” to purify the air in the
appartments… In the other end, Geneva is a sort of emblem of a
prosperous Occident, which stands for democracy and human rights.
Apart from the artistic perfomances on the program, anyone can take
the microphone and send her or his sounds to the West.
