Studio Karakashyan is a multidisciplinary production company specializing in dance, film, and immersive experiences. Leaving a cultural imprint through the power of movement is what drives us forward – we simply believe that good storytelling comes from a deeply-stirred well.
Oh yes, we like to stir things up.
We are an international collective of artists from all disciplines focusing on creative direction that both scratches the artistic urge and fulfills the business needs. We move comfortably between these two worlds, and the studio’s emphasis on concept-driven storytelling makes us your best partner for this dance.
We are directors, producers, choreographers, filmmakers, composers, visual artists, photographers, and beyond, crossing disciplines and coming together to provoke inspiration, challenge the status quo and shape a better future.
Founded in 2018 by director and choreographer Kosta Karakashyan and producer Todor Barganov, the studio dances across multiple disciplines of art producing compelling and unexpected visual storytelling.
We believe that mentorship is the constant ebb and flow that moves the cultural needle forward. With an aim to give back to our community and lead emerging talent with proven experience, our signature Artist Development Masterclass series empowers the next generation of artists to pursue their careers with gusto.
Our commissions include works for music videos, stage performances, nontraditional sites, public spaces, immersive theater, dance, film, fashion, and branded content. Our clients and partners include H&M, Calvin Klein, ELLE, Fashion Days, Cinelibri Festival, Bellissimo Clinic, The Gabrovo Biennial of Humor and Satire, Goethe-Institut, Greenpeace – Bulgaria, HRC Culinary Academy, Single Step Foundation, Sigala, MNEK, Columbia Ballet Collaborative, and Ballet Arabesque. Our work has been featured by The Guardian, ELLE, them, GLAAD, and Radio Free Europe.
