This ‘‘rose-flavored’’ performance evokes the beauty and wealth of the Middle-Eastern culture. I speak about meeting, about conviviality and mutual enrichment. After a tempestuous Arab Spring, where people fought for freedom of expression and individual rights, and faced with growing anti-Islamic sentiments in our region, I have chosen to question the contemporary customs in the East as in the West. I wear a mini-dress cut to resemble the 1960s style, referencing sexual freedom, women’s lib movement, to the conquest of the space. I use a visual design reflecting the 1980s, such as disco, video games, and entertainment. I dance and address the public at the same time, singing with a rhythmical musical accompaniment inspired by Egyptian pop music of the 1990s. My dress consists of 124 lokum cubes (Turkish delight) of increasing size, which light up and draw motives in movement, synchronized with the music.
