Shokooh Mirzadegi, Prominent Iranian Critic

“Banafsheh’s work is entirely distinctive from what has commonly been called Persian Dance. Highly artistic and virtuosic in choreography and execution, it is a dance that for the first time can be called “contemporary Persian Dance” or “Banafsheh Dance”, representative of Persia, borne in a period where dance is forbidden. “Banafsheh Dance” is a heartfelt expression of the Persian cultural and artistic needs that have been long oppressed.”
