Created and performed with three Iranian performers during Fadjr International Theatre Festival, 2018

The veil in front of our eyes.
Veil as hijab.
A veil as the border between private and public.
A veil as the theatre curtain, hiding and revealing what's happening behind the scenes. The private made public.
A veil to hide or protect, like invisible borderlines between the private and public sphere, allowing some to enter, others not.
Like the skin is a veil covering the skeleton, organs, nerves, thoughts and emotions.
