Burqa makes uncertain the codes and the perception we have of the body. Performed by a male, posture erected by the high heels, legs muscles bulging, the burqa is not a limitation anymore but seems rather to reinforce the action of the performer like a powerful outfit still being a veil giving all its freedom to the body. Though, the lack of visibility places the performer in a strong interior alignment and listening of the place. Like a superhero. Implicitly, Burqa talks of body and politics.
