Maryam Bagheri Nesami

Coming from the underground dance community in Iran and after having lived and performed as an undisciplined Middle Eastern dancer outside ofIran, Maryam Bagheri Nesami questions the conventional framing, homogenising gazes, categorizations and reductionist definitions of dance and moving bodies.
