Who we are

Mahshid Alavi

Hey ! I’m Mahshid. My artistic journey began with dancing in Iran, where I’m from.

In the UK, I started making films and learning how to tell stories through different mediums. I am passionate about live performance, filmmaking and photography. Using art to empower voices has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my work with community groups over the last few years.

I am grateful for the opportunity to join Common Wealth Performance Collective. One of the things I love about Common Wealth is its ability to create immersive and engaging experiences for the audience and that is exactly what I want to achieve by creating performances. Collaborating with other collective members is such a joy. We get to experiment, learn, and share the joy of creating together.
