An online event will be held to explore the feminist dance essay of Nora Amin, Dance of the Persecuted (MSB Matthes & Seitz, March 2021) which can be considered as one of the foundations of her concept for the workshop Re-Rooting. The event will include a reading by Nora, a streamed conversation with the dance critic Arnd Wesemann, and an open discussion. The event is held in cooperation with the publishing house MSB Matthes & Seitz.


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.
