Residency dates: Mon 7 - Fri 11 Dec 2020
Peyvand is a performer and theatremaker born, bred and based in London. She seeks to make socially engaged work which activates an audience and prompts them to consider the world around them and their place within it in a different way. Recent projects include debut solo show Dual دوگانه (Vault Festival 2020 Show of the Week award), and performer and collaborator on Rich Kids: History of Shopping Malls in Tehran (Fringe First Award 2019). Peyvand’s interests include punk, politics and puppetry, and cats.
During the residency Peyvand will be using puppetry to explore the idea of "losing" your voice, and where it can be found through a central character who goes on the hunt for where theirs might be. This is her first time collaborating with artsdepot and she is looking forward to combining her experience in community and performance work.
