Raving Dahlia


"Hello, I am Dahlia. The world’s first Femmenoid. I am specialised to serve Sevdaliza within the unrealistic expectations of women in modern society. If we want peace we prepare for war.”

In order to bring her art to life, Sevdaliza built a physical robot - a Femmenoid - that represents the ”perfect” woman. It serves as a vehicle to convey the harsh truth about navigating in the music industry as a woman who does not conform to an industry standard - sonically, physically and mentally

Dahlia has already been introduced to the public online, at STRP Festival 2022 Dahlia is physically shown to the world for the first time. Dahlia is presented on a stage, surrounded by poignant images of how women consciously and unconsciously change as a result of external pressure. A conscious form is plastic surgery, an unconscious form is the depression that can arise due to the pressure to perform. The power of the woman is also present in the installation through protest and community, and processes of birthing, breastfeeding, and caring.


Sevdaliza (NL), known in her daily life as Sevda Alizadeh, is an Iranian-Dutch singer, composer and producer that is known for her introspective songs, which navigate between trip hop, R&B and classical, and her visually powerful videos and live shows. Sevdaliza has become one of our generation’s leading artistic voices through her revered sonic exploration and unrelenting pursuit to push boundaries. Sevdaliza is an autodidact, who has developed into an independent powerhouse with global impact.
