DJs will guide the evening musically and make you dance after dinner.

For this week’s Dinner Session, the Iranian Elnaz & Mahtab prepare a typically Iranian menu, including a broad choice of dishes. Through dinner, Elnaz and Mahtab aim to offer a safe space for conversation about the current situation in Iran. Silk, a moniker of Natousch Gerritsen, accompanies the dinner by playing some groovy tunes.

Elnaz & Mahtab

Elnaz and Mahtab, both Iranian women, work as creative artists in The Hague, a collaboration they started in 2019. Their projects demonstrate how individuals in certain restrictions can find creative outlets to mediate personal distress and address political injustices. In the context of the recent events happening in Iran, they have started searching for ways to initiate a way to invite people for conversation.


Natousch Gerritsen is a tour de force as far as DJs go. With an eclectic collection of records and an ear for catchy hooks, she takes you along for a ride full of funky post-punk sounds. Natousch is the singer of the band TOUSCH and when she is not moving up and around the stage, she seeks to make you move to the best post-punk, funk, and ‘80s new wave bangers.
