At the borders of dreams and reality, this Paris-based dancer and choreographer uses poetry, music, and dance to showcase the mythologies of Iran.  Shahrokh Moshkin Ghalam: Gorgeous technique, and a gifted dancer.


Mr. Moshkin-Ghalam is a graduate in History of Art and Theater from the Universite’ of Paris 8, specialized in mystical dance, his work also takes root from Indian, Indonesian, and Flamenco influences.  In 1997 he founded the company Nakissa Dance Company, where he creates works in Persian.  Since January 2005 he has been an official member of the “Comédie Fançaise” playing with major international stage directors.

Born in Iran and emigrating to France, he trained in various forms of dance in his early teens. Beyond that, Google’s translation tools notwithstanding, and not being a Facebook user, I’m not finding much more information about his background, but he has toured the US and he hobbies in photography.
