Mahsa Hammat Bahary
Mahsa originally trained at Project A, an intensive acting course at Newcastle’s Theatre Royal. Since graduating, she has appeared as Hobby in Teechers (Gala Theatre, Durham), Alana in Our Laygate (The Customs House), and as lead role Farida in the regional short film Falling.
Mahsa has also performed in several Theatre in Education tours throughout the UK. These performances were aimed at young people aged 12 to 15, and covered topics such as water consciousness, environment care and awareness of after-school education options such as traineeships and apprenticeships.
Mahsa began working with Damn Cheek when she appeared as Jamilla in the site-specific theatre piece Passion For The Planet (2021) at Christ Church Felling and then as The Girl in the tour of Monday’s Child (2022).
She is delighted to be an Associate Artist, working with the Damn Cheek team whose core values she shares and with whom the “work” of acting is always “fun and a privilege”.
