Maryam Bagheri Nesami is a dance writer and artistic researcher from Iran, based in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Her background as a dance person was established in Iran, where ‘dance’ is illegal for women, and therefore, the practice of dancing is a political act. Dealing with censorship and prohibitions in a theocratic society, to live both as a woman and as a dancer have provided Maryam with capacity to negotiate, being strategic, being inclusive, and contingent on micro-politics. Her artistic PhD (University of Auckland, 2021) has built a body of scholarly that looks at dance within the context of exile, migration, reparative strategies, strategies of resistance, practice of freedom, dance of minority and marginalized groups. folded possibilities is one of her post-PhD choreopolitical negotiations proposing a migratory and nomadic mode of presence that is potential to sustain balance when grounds are uneven.
