- Nima Kiann
Les Ballets Persans is the realization of a dream by Nima Kiann, who has made it his mission to keep a once striving and flourishing National Ballet of Iran from disappearing forever. It is through his guidance and inspiration that the repertoire has been created based on wide collaboration with international performing and visual artists. The interwoven fine lines of classical ballet, Persian music and the contemporary interpretation of both, brings about the magical multicultural sensation provoked and enhanced by the various artists.
Nima Kiann’s choreographies permeate through classical ballet and deliver new forms of movement revealing the connected spirit of diversity, while widening the senses of audiences throughout Europe and North America. The company’s thematic repertoire ranges from classical ballets such as Scheherazade and Seven Beauties to neoclassical works like Babek. The contemporary productions are the exploration of modern themes that bestow humanity and yearn to be expressed. Searching for this cutting edge expression in the ancient culture of Iran, which carries the aestheticism of Mithra and the ritual dance of our ancestors, creates unimaginable possibilities.
As an international touring ballet company, with deep roots in the Persian culture and heritage, Les Ballets Persans has been partially sponsored by various Swedish authorities, and is regarded as an important emissary of integration concepts.
