Since their first work Farci.e, Sorour Darabi has been exploring the notion of transgression, with a particular focus on the potential of reappropriation. Reappropriation can bring to light what is masked by binary thinking: the hybrid myths hidden between left and right, man and woman, human and animal, good and bad, physical and spiritual, natural and industrial...

Natural Drama questions the concept of “nature” through the lens of contemporary environmental issues and from a historical and socio-political perspective, with all that implies for the body. This performance is a kind of futuristic mythology with its roots in dance traditions both seen and hidden, preserved and lost.

60 min.

Sorour Darabi is an Iranian artist living and working in Paris. Working actively in Iran, they were a part of the underground organization ICCD, whose festival Untimely (Teheran) hosted their work before their departure for France. During studies at the CCN de Montpellier they created the solo Subject to Change, a performance upon time and one’s cohabitation with an environment. In 2016, they created Farci.e, a solo dealing in notions of language, gender identity and sexuality. In 2018, they created Savušun. In 2021, they create two new solos : Mowgli and Natural Drama.
