My visual practice relates directly to my personal experience of being a woman in the Iranian society. The works have been made with the opportunity of working outside of Iranian border where one can have more freedom of expression.
For thirty years in Iran, the authorities have almost forbidden certain performances, namely dancing and solo singing for women, along with the prohibition of some western styles of singing and dancing for both genders. The issue of prohibiting a sexual gender from certain activities for thirty years and the forced silence of women were the reason for making the videos.
