Damir Siraciev ([dʌˈmir siræˈʑiəf] Tatar Cyrillic: Дамир Сираҗиев, Russian: Дамир Сиразиев, Damir Siraziev, October 17, 1954[1] [2]) was a Tatar theatre director and actor. He was born Siraziev Raid Ravilovich (Russian: Сиразиев Раид Равилович) in Chelyabinsk, USSR and later moved to Kazan[3]. He died in 2001 or 2002[4], interred at the Tatar Cemetery in Kazan.

Siraciev was the director in both Tinçurin Theater and Kamal Theater[3] in Kazan, Tatarstan, Russia, who tried to bring a fresh look on theater as an art [5]. He was first who established cultural relations with Tatars living in Turkey.In 1991 on his initiative (together with his close friend composer Masguda Shamsutdinova) the TÜMATA folk and mystic music band were invited to Kazan. Their three concerts in Tinçurin Theater were a great success. Another important contribution of Damir Siraciev was his role in organizing the visit of the world-known ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev to Kazan and his appearance, already heavily affected by AIDS, in front of the audience at Musa Cälil Tatar Academic Opera and Ballet Theater in Kazan in March 1992 as a conductor [6] [7].
