Nikta Sabouri

Assistant Director

Nikta Sabouri is very excited to be part of CSC again after being the assistant director on the “Death and the Maden” performance in 2018. She is an Iranian-American freelance theatre director, translator, and actor based in Boston.
As an artist living in the diaspora, she finds her way of expressing herself and contributing to socio-cultural activities by presenting part of her culture that is less known to the rest of the world. To do so, she embarked on a multi-year project to translate and direct the works of Bahram Beyzaie, one of Iran’s essential contemporary playwrights. She co-translated the book “Naqqali Trilogy,” by Bahram Beyzaie, published in the spring of 2023 by Ilex Foundation and Harvard university press. She is currently doing a residency at New Repertory Theatre in the Pipeline Project program.
