Banafsheh Sayyad

Iranian-born dance artist and transformational teacher, Banafsheh communicates the universal message of Sufi mysticism in a passionate yet meditative way. Her dance is an interplay between trance and directed movement, completely precise yet completely abandoned and unrestrained. Her explosive movement is sensual and ritualistic, an organic trance of impeccable technique gone wild yet anchored by a serene core. She invokes the ancient roots of dance as devotion and prayer while blazing an unique trail in contemporary dance with her masterly fusion of high level dance technique and spirituality.
