Nadia Iftkhar is a professional dance artist based in the North East. She has over 15 years’ experience working in a diverse range of settings, including work with companies such as; ZENDEH, Talawa Young People’s Theatre, Tyneside Women’s Health, and Janice Parker Projects.
To date she has made and collaborated on over 20 works that have been performed at Northern Stage, Maltings Berwick, Sadlers Wells, Dance City, Konzerthaus Wien, Theatre Royal Newcastle, MuTh and SommerTheatre Detmold.
Her work is honest storytelling of the human experience told through movement, spoken word and film. She is interested in people, the stories they hold, the things that happen to them throughout their lives; how they survive the most traumatic situations and how they celebrate the joyous moments in life.
Nadia’s happy place is her Nana’s house, watching old movies on a Sunday afternoon with a cup of tea.
