Ibrahim Amir was born in Aleppo (Syria) in 1984. He started to study theatre and media studies at the University of Aleppo but after three semesters he was expelled because of his activity in a Kurdish student organisation. In 2002 Amir moved to Vienna where he took up medical studies which he has successfully completed. Already during his time as a student, he started to write plays in German. His plays have now been translated into a variety of languages including English, Swedish, Finnish, Turkish, Danish, Norwegian, Spanish and Japanese.
