Tara Khozein is an Ecuador-born, Iranian-American singer, theatre-maker, musical director, sonic improviser, teacher, and composer. She has lived, studied, and worked in New Mexico, New York, Germany, France, and Hungary. As a multidisciplinary performer, she explores the intersections of classical and experimental singing, and physical theatre.
 

Tara holds an artist diploma in physical theatre from The Jacques Lecoq School in Paris, a B.M. in classical vocal performance, and is a lifelong student of classical and experimental singing. After her formal education, she lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico for seven years, where she directed circus, immersive, operetta, and children's performances, and established her improvisation practice. While in Santa Fe, she became a company member of Theater Grottesco, and was on the original sound design and creation team for Meow Wolf's House of Eternal Return, where she later served as the primary content director for immersive performance. After moving to Budapest at the end of 2019, she established an online voice studio.

Her recent creative projects include a film by Godfrey Reggio with music by Philip Glass, sound design for Stereo Akt in Budapest and at NYC's Rattlestick Theatre, and the central role in Samu Gryllus's interactive opera, Geiseloper. She is also a member of The Tara and Rhonda Show, JazzaJ's Budapest Improvisors Orchestra and Timo Kinnunen's International Experimental Orchestra.
