Kilebi da Kalebi


Medium: Performance, video, spoken word, dance, movement

Project by: Khinkali Juice

Location: NAC, National Art Centre, Tbilisi, Georgia

The topic of this performance dealt with how Georgians want to present themselves to foreigners by impressing people with their hospitality and cooking. We showed two different kinds of bodies and behaviors of Georgian women – a shabby housewife and an attractive woman.


In the work, we also integrated a video made especially for this piece – two of the performers sleep surrounded by many empty bottles and jars, demonstrating the motionlessness of the majority of Georgia’s population.
