Mayar Alexan

Mayar Alexan is a theatre director and performer who works closely with a variety of different elements that create the "performative image"; light and set design, together with the performative bodies, the dramaturgical concepts are the elements that merge and develop equally to create visual sensorial experiences.

Before embarking on his MA in Art Praxis at the DAI, Mayar graduated from the Higher Institute of Dramatic Arts in Damascus (Syria) in 2013. Through directing projects like "A Ticket to Atlantis" (2016), "Three Seconds" (2017) and "Hanging" (2019) he was able to draw his professional artistic identity within the Arabic and the European theatre scenes, collaborating with local and international artists and platforms.
