TURNING TO A NESHAST

Turning to a Neshast
är en rekonstruktion av asylprocessens rollspel, där vi placerar våra politiska jag i asylintervjuns struktur. Genom att iscensätta de roller den asylsökande och intervjuaren är satta att spela, undersöker vi objektivitetens och narrativets densitet.
Med fokus på våra egna erfarenheter från detta rollspel, närmar vi oss gränserna för dessa positioner, så att de kan tänkas över och kanske skrivas om. Vad är en intervju och vad är ett samtal? Det här är vändpunkten, en neshast.

Av och med Samira Motazedi, Frida Sandström, Johanna Martell och Masoud Vatankhah.

Turning to a Neshast is a reconstruction of the migration role play, where we put our political selves in the situation of an asylum interview. By staging what has to be staged by the interviewee him/herself, we investigate the density of objectivity and narrativity. By emphasizing on our personal experiences from this role play, we enlarge the elasticity of each of ours positions, to be reconsidered and remade. What is an interview and what is a conversation? This is the turning point, a neshast.

With and by Samira Motazedi, Frida Sandström, Johanna Martell and Masoud Vatankhah.
