"Mother Tongue" is a solo by choreographer Tami Stronach about the process of tracing the evaporating threads of memories. Set to Persian folk songs and the sounds of the Persian language, Stronach searches for the familiar in the rhythms of what once was her mother tongue, now completely forgotten. Stronach was born in Iran to British and Israeli parents who were working there as archeologists. Her family fled during the revolution of 1979. In this dance, we transformed old film footage from an archeological site her parents were working on into a conversation with Tami's own excavation of how experience is captured in the body, in the way one moves and in the gestures that feel like home to us.
