journey

Coming from a background of literature, education & communication, Sina is an independent performer & maker whose creations revolve around choreography, performance and live art. He helped establish & co-founded MaHa Dance Projects in Tehran. His artistic journey is inspired by the urgency of physical expression as a tool for cultural co-creation. In terms of artistic practice, Sina takes the 40-plus-year gap that the art form of dance has faced in Iran & questions where Iranian contemporary dance might be today. Addressing his questions around identity-born out of this particular context-he looks at elements within the Iranian culture & their relevance today within a more global context. In 2017 he founded Kahkeshān, an indeterminate space dedicated to choreographic creation and movement research.
