Fırat Neziroglu, was born in Izmir and from an early age felt connected to dance, which weaved itself into his world.
For his studies he danced and weaved; he started working by unravelling himself, his aim was to recognize himself and the world by dancing, and weaving.

He was invited to Oslo under the auspices of the Norway Royal Embassy and to Thailand for the birthday celebrations of the Queen of Thailand in order to weave a special cloth to her. He was elected as Thailand's brand ambassador by the Thai Kingdom.
He was invited to the Lausanne Biennial, the world's most important fiber art event and a piece from here became the cover of Christie's!
He represented his ready to wear collection on the runway of New York Fashion Week.
Firat always continues to weave in his workshop; for national and international contests and for fashion designers.
Nowadays he is exhibiting weaving performances accompanied by music on stage, which have been projected for the very first time in Turkey.
Firat's dreams were realised on stage with ModernDansLAB; ensemble of classical ballet-modern dance.
When Firat found yoga he reflected on being human and how to transcend feelings of the body and mind and through this he continues to explore and weaves the threads of life that make him whole.
