She will spend June-August 2018 in Berlin to expand on her performance work focusing on the relationship between longstanding communities and recent migrants to Berlin and how this relates to a global context of human movement.

Norouzi (1983), originally from Iran, now living between Iran and Montreal Canada, uses an interdisciplinary approach, incorporating video and performance.
