“I am a storyteller and actor from Iran. Nasim is not my real name, but the one I chose to be able to tell my stories. I like that in Iran the name is used for both men and women. My migration gave me an unique perspective on the different lives we live. From cultural differences to differences related to human rights. Being able to talk about these issues has fueled my work as a storyteller.“
The story that I share with Storybook and with you is part of a performance I created together with Sahand Sahebdivani called Four Weddings and an Iranian Funeral
“Secret lives of the Iranian gay community”
In ‘Four weddings…’ I tell the stories of the Iranian gay community and the secret lives they live, while at the same time telling you about my own journey. From my first kiss to saying goodbye to my parents. Some of the stories are happy, some are tragic, all are told with a great love for the people I have met along the way and the ones I had to leave behind.
