Marbled Pick Three

Title of Piece: Shahmaran
Brand: Sevdaliza
Production Company: Handsome, Compulsory, Halal
Director(s): Emmanuel Adjei
Short Synopsis: The piece questions the eternal fascinations and desires of the human mind. It’s the story of the black man, who continues life in a cycle of oppression. The modern chains on black men today are the aspirations of decadence, power, and success that create a false sense of autonomy and freedom. This leaves them victim of addictions to power and materialism, unable to venture outside what is “expected” of their behavior. This is visible in the strong symbolic nature of the work, reflected in both the visual and the music. It’s a stylized parable world that shares an almost biblical semantic.
