Hediyeh Azma

First at Khoj


Based in Oslo, Hediyeh is an Iranian dancer, choreographer and dance scholar. Her productions engage in a creative-critical remapping of experience, questioning the current accepted socio-political patterns to envision an alternative understanding of the present. Her works are characterised by long term engagement in Iranian embodied cultures and movement vocabulary. Site-specific, as a spatial alternative mode, informs her recent productions: Lupiner (2022)Recite the City (2021)The Moss (2018).

Hediyeh has an MA in dance anthropology, from a consortium of four European universities (NTNU, UCA, SZTE, RoU), with the focus on site-specific, audience-participatory performances.

As both artist and curator, Hediyeh had several national and international collaborations with Khoj (India), Goethe Institute (Germany), Nordic Black Theater (Oslo), RIFF Dance Festival/R.E.D Residency (Eina), Scenekunstbruket (Norway) and Rommen Scene (Oslo) among others.

She has received  awards such as the Appreciated director and Best Experimental Performer. Currently preparing to tour her last work, Lupiner, and keen to collaborate with other artists and companies.
