And when you thought u were safe… Think different. Perform different. Live different. Cook different. Always push the other way around. OK Computer, OK Boomer – never ever ever trust the Carpet Merchants. Always do it your way. Go unexpected, go camouflage and adapt to increasingly changing situations. Reinvent yourself all the time.
Trump is gone. No more walls – but no more sell out and flying around for nothing. Think flygskam. Save the world some CO2, boost your neurons first. Stay in, Stay Home. And let, in these pandemic days, your ideas travel across the globe instead.
GELINAZ! performs food, morphs concepts. GELINAZ! cooks ideas, not just your dinner. Beyond the dictatorship of the copyright: one Matrix, multiples Remixes. Not just one Truth, but many multiple Truths.
Prick up your ears, hear the Unspoken. Listen to the Silent Voices all around. They might be casualties of the pandemic we all drown in, with their restaurants closed or postponed. They might be caught in between two phases of their lives in these difficult times. They are “In-Betweeners”, baring their souls, the New Dreamers. Listen to the Choir of the Silent Voices on Tour. Sing along their hopes, their fears, twist and shout their epiphanies, ghetto blaster their melancholia. Meet the poets past their graveyard, enter the GELINAZ! experimental playground.
The GELINAZ! “SILENT VOICES” ON TOUR comes in several dates.
Official kick off was December 3 2020, the international “Stay In” day, when GELINAZ! celebrates the Domosophism Day. The D-Day when all the GELINAZ! chefs across the world stay where they really belong – at home, in their own kitchens.
Each chef are given total freedom, curating everything, starting with the names of the fellow chefs invited to the venue to Remix the Matrixes, cooking in teams all the SILENT VOICES recipes sent to them. Curating the whole performance means: deciding the design of the gig, the possible inclusion of artists, defining the length, the shape, the content, the price and the size of the audience allowed, for sanitary reasons, to be part of the performance.
Chapter 1: Dec. 3rd 2020 (Worldwide)
Interlude: July 11th 2021 (Vienna, Austria)
Chapter 2: Aug. 29th 2021 (Worldwide)
Final: Nov. 15th 2021 (Copenhagen, Denmark)

No fake news: GELINAZ! plays the rules and plays by the rules.
Yo Chef, Yo! You will only cook the Matrixes that have been delivered to your doorsteps. A Matrix, is not just a recipe: it’s a starting point. Your task: to tear it into pieces first and only then to reconstruct it. To Remix it like a DJ does, pushing it even further, stripping bare its unconscious and its beats in order to make it your own.
Everybody got to do what he/she has got to do. A Matrixer has got to create the Matrix, the Remixers got to crack the Matrix and Remix it. The Matrixes have been expressly created for this performance by the SILENT VOICES Choir, GELINAZ! lads and gals in need of a podium, a space where to express themselves, devoided at the moment of a restaurant after it closed its doors because of the lockdown or the rough economics. A SILENT VOICE Matrixer might also be a chef caught by surprise at a crucial moment of his life, on the eve of a new project, unfortunately postponed because of the pandemic. We call them the In-Betweeners (in between two phases, two projects, two lives) our new Dreamers.
It happens one time, and one time only, in a venue close to you. The chef is your host. Be nice to him/her and his/her team: they all have been sweating their asses off. For you, for all of us. Remember, your host is not just the most perfect host: he/she is the curator of this all damn thing. A multi-task(ed) hero who took care of everything, who called the gathering of the fellow performers, loyal daredevil chef friends, willing to Remix all together in teams their assigned Matrixes. For days and weeks, they have been emailing each other, swapping ideas and prepping concepts.
Who cares about copyright and authorship? Matrixes are sent anonymously, apocryphally. Nobody knows who is hidden behind them... The audience will only discover, along with the chefs and their teams, the original author of the Matrixes that have been played and remixed on site, at the end of the gig. That’s the exact moment of the Reveal: the Epiphany.
A GELINAZ! gig is not a show. It’s a play, it’s theatrics. If you are amongst the audience, don’t feel like the excluded Drama Queen. Be part of the gig. Interact with the performers, be an actors not just the passive/aggressive spectator. Report the happening, share the content and the mood. You might be seated but you share the center of the stage.
Expect anything but the unexpected. Definitely not the usual supper and pudding thing. Expect a Whole Lotta Love of Food -and lots of booze to gulp it down- but Food for Thought it will be. Not for the squeamish and the faint of heart. Or any sort of just Fine Dining Lovers. GELINAZ! brings you where only a few (happy them) dare to follow: beyond food and evil.
