In A Reason to Talk, KVS face Sachli Gholamalizad tries to find out why she has such a strained relationship with her mother. She immerses herself in her family history and confronts her mother and grandmother in a compilation of texts & video. 

The multiple layers and contradictions in the lives of these three women are established on stage by the use of various media. Gholamalizad integrates memories, soundscapes, excerpts from novels, her diary and video that she shot and edited herself in Iran and Belgium to create a very personal performance.

She’s never there. Working. Always working.
Building a new life.
Pride. We are no different from the rest.
Own room. 15. Peace at last. Lock on the door at last.
No one pressuring me.
This is my life.
New life.
Don’t need anyone.
I’m different from her.
Can’t accept her.
Leave me alone dammit.
Good memories.
I remember nothing.
My head is empty. My head is full. I don’t want to think.
