Aiyesha Ghani

Multidisciplinary artist/musican/dancer, Aiyesha Ghani, has been blazing her own path for her entire life. As a graduate of New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study ’06, she has been on both the artistry & production side of live events for many years. She started out doing set design and stage makeup for high school productions and then later moved on to help her peers bring their visions to fruition through videography & video production.

Now with over 10 years of hands-on experience, Aiyesha draws from all aspects of live production, a broad variety of roles, and a wide range of settings. From managing & maintaining the aquatic system used for David Blaine’s widely televised “Drowned Alive” spectacle in Lincoln Center in 2006 to managing and maintaining staff, volunteers, & patrons for the inaugural year of multi-day music festivals, to building and running stages for  artists at Grassroots Festival of Music & Dance, Aiyesha’s breadth of knowledge in the field of production operations & logistics is vast. Currently, she’s in residence at Paradise Cream Studios, a multidisciplinary arts space/fabrication shop, and works freelance in a professional setting for corporate clientele as a rigger/lead audio/lead video technician.


“Hermana” by Aiyesha Ghani for the #MNMF2018

“Hermana” is a video about the earth searching for water. “My project speaks about the Colorado River and the Colorado River Delta. After the creation of several dams on the Colorado River in the US, the delta in Mexico which was once a lush and vibrant ecosystem, collapsed.”
