Afsaneh is a performer, maker and collaborator working across theatre, live art and installation. Her work is sensory-led and explores the intersection of myth, ecology and the body in the making of immersive, intimate and participatory art experiences.

Majoring in sculpture at Swinburne and Monash Universities, she went on to study and work with renowned teachers across the globe in diverse performance practices, finally gaining a Masters of Sensory Theatre with the University of Girona, Spain.

At Polyglot, she enjoys making shows that celebrate what children do best; use their imaginations and all their senses to explore, play and co-create the world.


Acknowledgment of country

Polyglot acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and create, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. For more than 65,000 years, children and families have created and played here, and we are grateful to make our art on this country too.
