Dshamilja Roshani is a Berlin-based poet, writer and performer of German-Iranian descent. Dshamilja’s work is rooted in their truth, their entire truth in its uncomfortable, expanding, ever-changing form. They regard honesty as the foundation that enables other people to weave their own realities into the work, making the experience a layered and inherently collaborative process.
Having been featured on various international platforms such as Word N Sound, Button Poetry, Decolonoize Festival and the Poetry Meets Series, Dshamilja is passionate about growing, connecting and working with different art communities. This includes pushing the boundaries of spoken and written word by merging it with sound and video. Dshamilja keeps chasing the moving target of consciousness through a queer, feminist, decolonial and anti-capitalist lens.
