Stamp over

Stamp over is a performance art that deal with emotions in relations to the thing that we go thru in our daily life. These emotions such as love, anger, fear, joy, happiness are common to each and every one of us when confronted or faced in a given situation.
In this performance multimedia artist Amir Zainorin and dance performer Aida Redza, both born in Malaysia but now based in Denmark, would like to address the issue migration and the challenges that one has to face in order to adapt oneself in a new culture, social structure and values.
In our world the immigration laws has been tightened after the 9 11 event and the Muhammad cartoon crisis. Traveling and migrating from one country to another has never been more difficult. This is ironic given that the world is becoming smaller due to globalization and new communication technology that man has invented over the last few decades.
We have somehow been conditioned for individual differences and like to put people in a category, ‘they’ and ‘us’. We have fear within ourselves and to the things that we are not used to. Only if we all could see the essence in our basic human needs, that we are more or less indeed the same....then there will be no ‘other’, but it is all one.


STEMPLING ( danish translation)

Stempling er en kunstnerisk performance der handler om følelser i forhold til de ting vi går i gennem i vores hverdags liv. Følelser som kærlighed, vrede, angst og glæde er naturlige for os når vi konfronteres med særlige situationer.
I denne performance (anskuer)mutimediekunstner Amir Zainorin og danser og koreograf, Aida Redza, som begge er født i Malaysia spørgsmål om migration og udfordringerne man møder når man skal tilpasse sig i en ny kultur, social struktur og nye værdier.
I vores verden er immigrationslove blevet strammere efter 11. september og Muhammad krisen. Rejse og migration er blevet sværere. Dette er ironisk, da verden er blevet mindre som følge af globalisering og udviklingen inden for kommunikationsteknologi.
Vi er blevet opdraget med fokus på individualitet og vænnet os til at sætte folk i kategorier, ’dem’ og ’os’. Kun hvis vi kan se essensen i vores menneskelige behov, at vi er næsten ens, så vil der ikke være nogen ’anden’, men blot En.
