Snippets of a veiled, dancing silhouette before a richly varied photographed background – lively, elegant, and sensual. Presently the camera affords us a top view, and the regal fabric reveals itself as a Burka. Religious and political associations are no longer avoidable. In a game of representations, Arash T. Riahi articulates the ambivalence of a narrative that far transcends the confines of a simple dance performance.
