FARA TEKAN is rooted in Persian mysticism with an improvisational character,
created by visionary artist Sara Behrad.

Once FARA TEKAN flows, it transforms into a higher-frequency dance.
For Sara and me it is all about how to prepare ourselves to gain the capacity
for that ‘momentum’ to happen on our stage.
The audience becomes witnesses in the process of FARA TEKAN
and joins us as fellow travelers on a journey of discovery
through impulsive movements and dance.
FARA TEKAN was first presented in Iran in 2016.
In 2019 we left Iran for the Netherlands to expand our work.

FARA TEKAN was first presented with the title MITRA in the Netherlands
on May 3, 2022, at Theater Peeriscoop in the city of Gorinchem.

  1. “I’m fascinated by self-discovery and personal growth.
    I follow my inner guidance to share my love with those who are awake and aware.”
  2. “I’m here for FARA TEKAN, an event where I can explore other dimensions
    in a delicate and mystical way.”

    She obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theater from the Art University of Tehran
    between 1998 and 2002. In 2013, she pursued a one-year Master’s degree in Theater at DasArts in Amsterdam,
    where she explored the challenge of maintaining a poetic and balanced approach within an activist context.
    She also studied the Stanislavski system of acting in Iran, where she was inspired by Mahin Oskooi’s
    focus on self-nature. In 2014, she participated in a Movement Improvisation summer course in Amsterdam,
    where she experimented with body liberation and drew inspiration from Katie Duck.”
