Performance Silvesterklausen - Sachi Miyachi
Performance Silvesterklausen Sachi Miyachi
The third performance by artist Sachi Miyachi is inspired by a unique traditional festival ‘Silvesterklausen’ of the Canton of Appenzell Ausserrhoden, Switzerland. During this festival the villagers dress up and stop at each house to wish everyone a Happy New Year. By dressing up, ringing their bells and singing a typical yodel (Zäuerli) the villagers try to drive negative spirits away. Miyachis’ performance is an interpretation of the festival, she wants to show how people used to deal with fear and superstition. After the performance you will get a hand out which you can take home and perform the rituals yourself.
