The Golden Horizon  (افق طلائی)
Assembly of remembering – forgetting

Kubra Khademi invokes on stage the different women who are part of her work as a visual artist.
Both warriors and goddesses, the performer presents them to us through her drawings projected on stage and through Persian poetry from the 13th century to today.
She shows by this gesture all the strength and diversity of the Afghan culture, but also what is sacrificed today in her country because of the war: beauty and imagination.
With the complicity of Fatima Tawakkuli on stage, the artist, in front of a very large book, shares her culture in 7 paintings representing the 7 gates of hell. She tells us about the place she dreams for women, in a world where they still have to fight to exist.
