WHO

Peyvand is a performer and performance maker; born, bred and based in London. Their work is for the inquisitive and socially engaged. Peyvand blends performance styles, and acknowledges the audience in front of her. She also likes to involve puppets wherever possible. Springing from her own experience as a woman of mixed immigrant/refugee heritage, and growing up in one of the poorest parts of the UK, she puts marginalised narratives to the fore.

Peyvand is available to teach, collaborate and work on commissions  in the UK and abroad.
