Through an online public conversation with Sophia Stepf (Artistic Director Flinn Works), Nora will bring forward the criticism of the stigmatisation of the so called ’’belly dance'' and how it is linked to patriarchy, colonialism and capitalism. It is a chance to get an insider view into the work process as well as being part of a discussion on the dynamics of white economies/politics and how they control the performing arts sphere globally.
FLINN WORKS produces performances on current issues of the globalised world with feminist and post-colonial perspectives. At SOPHIENSÆLE they recently presented Learning Feminism from Rwanda (2020), with Asedeva Fear + Fever (2019) and Kosa la Vita - Kriegsverbrechen (2018). Flinn Works received the 2021 Tabori Award from the Fonds Darstellende Künste.
