Bobak is a dance trained multi-disciplinary artist. The driving force for his art is his frustration at the media portrayal, public discourse, and general treatment of all things Muslim, Islamic and middle eastern in contemporary Britain. Rather than these worlds instilling fear and panic he’s on a mission to share the joy, fun, laughter and respect from these cultures. He often draws upon his Bristolian, Hip-Hop, Iranian, and Yorkshire roots to make his compelling work.
Beautiful and thought-provoking, independent artist, Seeta Patel, overlaps forms and concepts, all underpinned by the rigorous thought and attention to detail derived from her classical background of Bharatanatyam to create unique, artistic dance works.
