Arash Khakpour is privileged to be a dancer and creator on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh nations. Originally from Tehran but currently residing in Vancouver. Arash’s desire is to see whether theatre can be a place, where the body investigates the alternate ways of being through the historical information in the world and in the body. He is interested in dance as the language in the theatre, which allows him to research about human conditions and nature through historical, social, political and existential interpretations. Arash is the co-founder of The Biting School alongside his brother Aryo Khakpour.
