Medea Mahdavi

Medea was born in Iran and moved to England as a teenager. She has developed a style of contemporary dance, which unites the fluidity, and spirituality of the Persian tradition with the sensuous earthiness of the other Middle Eastern styles.

Medea combines contemporary, classical and folk elements reflected not only in the dance but also in the diversity of her rich repertoire of music, costume and make-up. A hallmark of her work is collaboration, working with composers, writers and visual artists, to produce a dynamic and theatrical performance.
