When a person immigrates, it can feel to them like they’ve died and been born again—and that the birth and death is happening at the same time. Sometimes it is very hard to adjust and survive.

Visitors to This Storm Is You will experience the challenge of immigrating, surviving and adjusting through dance, light and photography. This project aims to capture a story of becoming and transferring.

Audiences will enter the installation through a series of life-sized, abstract dance photographs, accompanied by a soundscape to create the sense of a journey.

Zahra Saleki is a photographer and installation artist who resides in Toronto. This is her third time participating in Nuit Blanche Toronto.
