Lecture & Talk by Nora Amin
In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2019

Based on her experience as a performer and as a person, Nora Amin will guide us through the performative power of movement and dance in connection to recognizing emotional pain, physical memory and establishing a healing experience through expression and human bonding.

Nora Amin

Nora Amin is an Egyptian performer, choreographer, theatre director, author & dance instructor, living in Berlin. In her choreographic work, as well as in her writing and research, she adopts a feminist perspective and searches for personal authorships and signatures that can transform dance and performance either into a political medium of resistance, or into a field of intersectional healing. Throughout her body of work, she employs critical discourse whether to dismantle colonial patterns that are re-cycled within dance pedagogy and knowledge, or to construct an authentic choreographic language reflecting the identity’s journey through oppression, objectification and shaming. Her recent book “Dance of the Persecuted” reconstructs the history of Baladi dance in Egypt from a feminist perspective linking coloniality with capitalism and patriarchy.
