Reza Mirabi (Iran/Germany) is a visual artist, choreographer, dancer, and seed keeper with a background in ecological, social, and political projects in Kurdistan, Iran, India, and Portugal. Mirabi believes that everything - every place, every being, every material - is always already telling a story. Instead of overwriting these stories, Mirabi looks for different ways of listening to re- write ourselves into these more-than-human narratives. Listening for him becomes as much a choreographic as a political practice. A process to tap into archives that live in and around us but that have been rendered invisible - confronting both - personal and collective - forms of loss.
