Nikta Sabouri has finished her B.A. in Theatre-Directing in Tehran University in Iran and her M.A in Theatre Theory and Dramaturgy in the University of Ottawa in Canada. The focus of her Master’s thesis was on inter-culturalism theatre. She directed a play and explored the results of staging a medieval French play using elements borrowed from an Iranian traditional theatre form. She also researched on inter-culturalism theories which enabled her to recreate the traditional play in a new form. Nikta has directed more than ten plays and participated in multiple productions as assistant director, actress, and stage manager in Iran, Canada and the U.S.
