On Sunday, November 1st, 2015 at the Seaholm High School amphitheater in Birmingham, Detroit, The Arax dance troop gave another compelling show that delighted the audience. Dance choreographer Nayiri Garabedian, along with her two assistants Nayiri Kayserian and Dikran Calen endlessly worked for nine months to create their 11th show, entitled “We Remember and We Demand”.
The event was under the patronage of Mr. And Mrs. Hagop and Aida Dakessian. Among the audience were representatives and members of the clergy, special guests and 500 supporters. The MC was long-time Hamazkayin president Hermineh Manouguian. In her opening remarks, she said: “Just as fall brings with it different hues of colors, just as trees and leaves prepare to bid farewell, that’s when the Hamazkayin Arax dance troop prepares for their popular and folklore dances. You will see the beauty of the fall colors through the traditional Armenian dances and costumes resembling the fall leaves, the only difference being that leaves will dry up soon, however the dancers of the Arax troop will shine and stay cling on to our culture with pride”.
