One Woman – I Hear You
Work in progress: Salma is sharing a story which breaks a long-held and necessary silence. She is exploring BSL (British Sign Language) as a dance language. This work was developed as an exploration of Salma’s experiences of race issues. She journaled her process and the sharing will include some of her writing.
I Hear You: The Silence Project has been growing since 2021. Envisaged as a one-woman show for dance artist Salma Faraji, in collaboration with Fleur Darkin. The two artists came together in the aftermath of Darkin’s work My Friends Take Care of Me which touched on sensitive issues around abuse of power. We are excited to be navigating this journey together. Salma has also received mentoring from Christine Devaney, Curious Seed.
Salma is currently an artist in residence with Dance North as part of the Arts in Moray (AIM) Collective programme.
Arts in Moray (AIM) Collective is part of the Culture Collective programme funded by Creative Scotland – the AIM partnerships is made up of four organisations: Dance North Scotland, M.ADE, Wildbird and Moray Way Association
