Percolate Residency: Salma Ataya | 23 - 27 March 2020

In this residency, Salma Ataya will be exploring the idea of how to be a woman in two different societies and how things like other people’s behaviour toward us can change our body and our movements. The question is, how can we try and deal with what is happening daily in our life without letting it affect our bodies? Since what is in our mind affects us physically, how can we be ourselves without using a mask to hide who we are and not try to be someone else?  From experience and what she has seen in the streets, Salma will take the idea of abuse towards women from both genders and from ourselves to see how that affects the body and if it’s effect is the same in us in any way or if it is different depending on who we are and where we come from?
