Between 2016 and 2019, Saeed toured Germany, Italy, Lebanon, Dubai, Morocco, the United States and Spain with his solo piece What About Dante, which won the third prize at the International Solo Dance Theatre Festival in Stuttgart. Throughout his artistic career, he has also served as a dance teacher at the National Dance and Music Academy and Rome; and received a nine month artistic fellowship at Akademie Schloss Solitude. In 2021, Saeed participated in the Venice Biennale, where he presented two solo pieces and a group performance.
