Coming from a background of literature, education & communication, Sina is an independent performer & maker whose creations evolve around choreography, performance and live art. He helped establish & co-founded MaHa Dance Projects alongside nine other young artists in Tehran. MaHa is behind several dance initiatives in Iran including Iran’s first ‘body movement’ festival of March 2016. His own artistic journey is inspired by the urgency of physical expression as a tool for cultural development. In terms of artistic practice, Sina takes the (minimum) 40-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 the particular context of post-Islamic Republic Iran-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 movement research & dance creation from Tehran & beyond.
