Theatre has always been a big part of my life. It has been an excellent tool for my intra and intercultural communication in different countries and cities I lived in. I grew up in Iran, spend a few years in Dubai, UAE, and a decade in Prague, the Czech Republic…and who knows, maybe soon will be somewhere else!
I have encountered people from different races, social classes, and various cultural backgrounds. Since the theatre is an art that explores pure human energy, it is one of the best tools in a multicultural context to understand each other better. As a theatre practitioner, when there are words required to communicate, I use words. When action is needed, I use action. When dance, music, prose, or verse are necessary, I use them. I want to GIVE and RECEIVE in any context I live in. I love and respect human interaction.

I did my bachelor’s studies in theatre at Soore University in Tehran, my hometown. At that time, I was mainly focused on acting. I experienced my first International practices in theater and film in Dubai and expanded my experience in acting and directing in Prague, the city of dreams and stories. I attended a one-year Acting Program at Prague Film School, followed by a summer Film Directing workshop at the same school. Then did my Master’s studies at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (DAMU), and later started my Ph.D. studies at Charles University, the Department of Theatre Studies.

I am interested in academia and since 2017, have been teaching at Prague College and Charles University, various topics related to media or Iranian Arts. I presented my artistic and theatrical works in multiple cities and countries such as in Iran, UAE, Europe, and the United States.
