Commemorate Nowruz / the Iranian New Year with us and our host for this special event, Delaram Hosseinioun who is an Iranian artist & Writer.
The evening will be dedicated to the feminist Iranian poet Forough Farroukhzad. In a collaboration with the artist Laura De Gaspari and her choreography performance, we will recite Forough’s poetry to rejoice in women’s rights. Laura will be musically accompanied by musical artist Sattar Al-Saadi. With the situation in Iran at the moment, we cannot speak of celebrating Nowruz, but with Forough Farroukhzad in our hearts and her motto “ Only the voice remains”, we adhere to empowering women through arts and salute the spring.
Forough Farrouzad (1934-1967) is one of the frontiers of feminist poetry in Iran, she wrote candidly about womanhood and women's rights.
