Multiple Performances: JUNE 11th & JUNE 12th

In light of recent events, I have decided to do a performance with regards to what it means and feels like to be an expat while watching your country from afar. This will be an absolutely wicked performance 😈.


I was born in the United States and lived in Iran when I was little. Then returning to the states, I was bombarded with cultural dichotomies and value systems that conflicted with my childhood experiences. I grew up believing myself to be hated, ugly, and unwelcome in a country I was born in. Trump was elected and I left, no longer recognizing my own country and went searching of a place to call home. I found one and now I watch from afar as my country implodes on itself. I am not sure how to process or where to re-allocate my feelings and perspectives. Diasporas navigate the world in search of connection and community oftentimes realizing that there is no external home. Feeling disconnected and isolated from the world, they turn inward to the home stored in their memories creating an exoskeleton and forever carrying heimat on their backs.
