The performance “Am I comfortable enough?” is a critical examination of patriarchal culture and its imposition of standards on women. To be "accepted," women are expected to look and behave in a certain manner, suppressing assertiveness, aggression, persistancy, and the expression of personal opinions and boundaries - to be convenient. The performance's creators think that "comfortable" is a characteristic of furniture, not people.

The aim of the project is not only to highlight the deeply ingrained stereotypes and expectations placed on women but also to foster a dialogue about gender equality, respect, and the recognition of women's rights to express their emotions, opinions, and establish personal boundaries without fear of judgment or rejection. This performance seeks to challenge and provoke thought about the societal norms that confine women's roles and identities, encouraging a reevaluation of what it means to be "convenient" in a gendered context.
