Reza Mirabi

Reza Mirabi finds himself somewhere between a choreographer, visual artist, dancer, and seed collector, with a background in horticulture, environmental education, and reforestation projects in Iran, Kurdistan, India, and Portugal. 
Through sound, movement, and poetics, Mirabi looks for ways to embody stories. Urgent yet fragmented stories of both personal and political memories, materials, and forms of loss. Stories that are formed by listening and imagining, and listening again. Ways of listening with and through the whole body to respond critically to the layered (hi)stories of displacement that he carries within himself.
Listening here ultimately becomes a choreographic process and political act to tap into archives that have been rendered invisible. More recently, Mirabi has moved out of the black box and into site-specific contexts, where listening becomes the ground for rehearsing and co-composing with the material textures, languages, and (hi)stories of a place.

Reza Mirabi studied Fine Arts at the University of Mumbai and graduated from DAS Choreography, Master program at the University of the Arts, Amsterdam.
His works have been presented internationally, e.g. Marrakech Biennale (Morocco), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Sophiensaele Berlin, Het HEM (Amsterdam), Centrale Fies (Dro, Italy), Uferstudios/Tanzfabrik Berlin, ID Lab (Amsterdam), Veem Theater (Amsterdam), ICK Amsterdam, Flock (Portland, USA), Saltas (Oakland, USA)
