The piece is inspired by a symbolic Iranian myth about a Persian king who trans- forms into a three-headed monster, witnessing the growth of two snakes from his shoulders. The underlying concept of this myth still lives in us, every single moment we’ve been transformed inevitably, from reality to imagination, from motion to stillness, from internal mood changes and a minuscule virus to a massive explosion, changes us into different forms, stealing from us stability and stillness and turning us to an un-known creature.

The Company

MāHa is created by the body and meditating on the body itself, it aims at reminding us of passion and expressing it through movement, emphasizing on perception from the environment, action and reaction, effect and affect, individual worldview, learning and education. By designing and performing the movements, MāHa attempts to represent a narrative of the world, appreciate the sensation of the universe and, through the participation and sympathy of others, move a step closer towards promoting the art of dance and choreography.
