“It is thanks to the Aga Khan Music Initiative that ‘Qyrq Qyz’ came to life as a cross disciplinary project. Dartmouth College, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Museum Quai Branly and the National Centre of Contemporary Art, France, supported the project. The Art and Culture Development Foundation in Uzbekistan supported the filming of the project,” she revealed.
“The premiere went impressively well. The girls are great! Full hall, with such a positive and generous reaction,” Ismailova told The Astana Times. “The project is to show the strength and beauty of the Central Asian female world, through the talent of young creative representatives. ‘Qyrq Qyz’ intends to bring to life and transform into a modern language an oral ancient tradition that has disappeared. For me, this project celebrates the spiritual dimension of women and their ability to become the driving force of a civilisation.”
