a place to sit | Tara Fatehi Irani | fragments for borderless futures

This commission was created for perfromingborders’ 2021 e-journal: fragments for borderless futures.

Tara Fatehi Irani’s new commission a place to sit is launched in our e-journal: fragments for borderless futures. 

Many voices speak through Tara Fatehi Irani’s performance to camera a place to sit, which through movement and narration follows stories of borders from three Afghanistani women – Bibi Gol Azad, Fatema Tavasoli, Nazari – and considers the felt experience of borders, moving through time, the body and memory.
