Biography

Bahar Fattahi is a dancer and choreographer with a background in literature (mainly 19th century French literature) and theatre (Jerzy Grotowski’s tradition). 

Trained as a dancer in Tehran and the UK, her choreographic practice has been informed by a curiosity about literature and theories of language, dance’s relation to music and scores, as well as its confluence with philosophy.

Prior to commencing her PhD at Centre for Dance Research, she has presented her choreographic work across the UK, Amsterdam, Germany and France whilst also she completing an MA degree in Physical Theatre and Performance Studies from Royal Holloway University of London (2010), and an MFA degree in Choreography from University of Roehampton (2015).
