Nora Amin, the body of a woman accross history and cultures
𝗡𝗼𝗿𝗮 𝗔𝗺𝗶𝗻 is a writer, performer, choreographer and theatre director. As a writer she published four collections of short stories and four novels, besides an audio book of poetry. In 2000 she founded Lamusica Independent Theatre Group in Cairo to experiment with new forms of physical expression and to voice the unspoken issues of women and of socio-cultural repression. She directed and produced 37 theatre, dance and music productions before moving to Berlin in 2015. Her work is set between the areas of Literature, theatre/dance and feminism, and is all linked by the drive of socio-political activism where the artist takes the role of a rebel against the traditions of patriarchy, authority, sexism and racism.
"I think we have a universal history of trauma, that is related to the patriarcal system and also to all the violence that has been imposed on the bodies of women accross history and cultures. "
