“modern, relevant, and a perfect example of how art can and should deal with important subjects to incite change. [...]
A truly unique creation, inspiring both in its artistry and its content, it is a must-see for all women of color, women in general, or people of any gender who care about the women in their lives. [...]”
– Montreal Theatre Hub

“Kurdish Lady Jiyan is a magnet on stage with her sinuous moves as she seems to delight in removing her headscarf. […]
This is strong, feminist, and hypnotizing.”
– Montreal Rampage
