Six Pillars - July 15th 2018 (Choreophobia, Lilian Nejatpour)

British-Iranian artist Lilian Nejatpour discusses her piece, Choreophobia and practice that questions technological invasiveness and sentimentality. Choreophobia examines the intervening occurrence of colonialism and Western thought on Middle Eastern dance, with its interference on the censoring and transformation of gender and sensuality in male bodies. Choreophobia is at Chisenhale Studios in August as a work in progress, presented by curating collective To Whom This May Concern, and then at Somerset House, London in September.

Choreophobia
Choreophobia is inspired by choreographer Anthony Shay’s theory of 'Choreophobia', and looks at the intervening occurrence of colonialism and Western thought on Middle Eastern dance, with its interference on the censoring and transformation of gender and sensuality in male bodies.
