Content Magazine Pick Up Party

May 19, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm PDT

Farima Berenji and other South Bay artists are featured in interviews and photos in Content Magazine “Perform” Summer 2023 15.3:

A third-generation master cultural artist, Farima Berenji grew up in the light of her dancer mother and grandmother, literally dancing even as she learnt to walk. What puzzled her even then was how the matriarchs just seemed to accept the age-old traditions, and in turn, expected her to move to the melody without being able to explain why. Determined to find answers, Farima would turn to the sacred practitioners, the mystics, who were part of her learning eco-system.

That urge to dig deep, seek the truth, and understand the Why led her to pursue a degree in archeology in the US… Farima Berenji [is] founder and artistic director of Simorgh Dance Collective, anthropologist, archaeologist, and member of the International Dance Council CID UNESCO.

Farima wears the mantle of cultural ambassador with pride, aware of the enormous work ahead, committed to always stay in learning mode, adding, “The ancients said that when one stops learning, that is the end to life. Only 30 percent of history in Persia has been excavated, 70 percent remains to be found.
