The Iran protests, a major event, reflect frustration over restrictions on freedom and human rights violations. In her performance, Donya Ahmadifar explores the emotional state of Iranians during these protests, showing their recurring urge for change and emphasising Persian culture.

The 45-minute dance performance depicts the alternation between numbness and struggle. Video sequences and Persian music complement the performance.

This project aims to show humanity in Iran. People in Iran live, dance and dream just like anywhere else in the world. The connection between the people of Iran and the global community is emphasised in order to close the gap between perception and reality.


Artistic conception, choreography and dance: Donya Ahmadifar
Artistic research and development, as well as dramaturgy: Daniela Rodriguez Romero
Music: Jens Kuhlmann
Lyrics: Bobby Sayyar
