Gheresh Midam

Gheresh Midam is an investigation into the dancing female body as a form of resistance. Inspired by a scene from the film Gheysar, where actress Sharzad powerfully and captivatingly dances for a predominantly male audience, Roshanak Morrowatian takes a closer look at those performed gestures and explores the subtle ways the body has the capacity to regain power in spaces of inequality.

This short performance could be seen in 2023 in De Melkweg Amsterdam and as part of The Artists Are Present in Frascati Theater.
