Sufi artist, Rana Gorgani expresses herself as a whirling dervish, a spiritual practice through a rotating dance.
Ambassador of the Sufi dance, its know-how is recognized in France and abroad. With a master's degree in dance anthropology and ethnomusicology, she presents this heritage through unique artistic works that she creates by imagining the costumes, the choreographies ...
Her work does not stop at the world of traditional music, Rana collaborates with many musical styles (classical, jazz, contemporary, Balkan…) or even different companies (contemporary dance, circus…).
This atypical artist transcends borders just as she exceeds her physical limits through her total mastery of trance.
Member of the UNESCO International Dance Council, it participates in the development of this dance by offering professional training.
Today, Rana Gorgani's teaching attracts hundreds of people from all walks of life, dancers or not.
As a choreographic artist, my travels, encounters and experiences are food for my soul.
My creations are constantly evolving, attaching me to remain in perception in all its forms, with spontaneity and generosity. Today I am mainly involved in what I have called “the Sufi experience”.
The borders disappear, the East and the West merge to form the circle within which the Self, the Others and the Love are only ONE. "
