Zunnur (Zee) Zhafirah
Movement Artist | Dancer
Zee is a movement artist who currently dances with Hofesh Shechter Company and an Associate Artist with Bhumi Collective. She started dance training at a young age in traditional Malay Dance with Sri Warisan Som Said Performing Arts Ltd under the tutelage of Cultural Medallion Mdm Som Said. Being part of the pioneer batch at School of the Arts Singapore and danced with T.H.E. (Second) Dance Company, her love for contemporary dance brought her to London and graduated from London Contemporary Dance School with a scholarship from National Arts Council (Singapore) and Leverhulme Trust (UK).
Having toured internationally as a performer, she has also been invited as guest teacher and choreographer with various companies, festivals and residencies such as with M1 CONTACT Contemporary Dance Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, P7:1SMA and Lake Studios Berlin Residency. Other than her love for movement, Zee is a passionate Pilates instructor and writes in her spare time, shedding light on nature, consciousness, culture and empowering brown voices of women especially within Southeast Asia.
