Zhenia Mahdi-Nau is an artist based in Belfast who is doing a screendance related PhD at the University of Brighton.

This is a practice-as-research Ph.D in the state of flow and transcendence in the experience of embodied film and screendance.

Along with her academic investigations into related areas of consciousness, philosophy, psychology, neurology, she will produce experimental creative film works to accompany the research which she hopes to screen in a number of innovative ways in various locations, including Brighton.

You can see an example of her work here.

If you would like to collaborate/take part in Zhenia’s research, please email her at z.mahdi-nau@brighton.ac.uk, telling her about your work with some clips of your performances.”
