Roya Shadmand is a British writer, poet and performance artist, currently based in Paris. She has performed at various festivals across the UK, including Brainchild, Latitude and the Edinburgh Fringe (to name a few).
She is a Roundhouse Resident Artist, an ex-member of the 2015-2016 Roundhouse Poetry Collective, and was a finalist in 2016’s Chortle Student Comedian of the Year. Shadmand’s work circles around issues of gender, culture, (in)sanity, childhood, children’s education and questions concerning the existence of/struggle between ‘good’ and ‘evil’.
Sometimes she is funny, usually she is uncomfortable.
Roya will be performing 10 minutes of new material as part of a Hatch showcase of developing work.
