Part of FringeNYC: How do you deal with this? You plan to travel, but your suitcase throws out everything… like there is anyone else... whatever you put in, she takes out. You want to leave, she wants to stay. Do you want to experience a dilemma? More…
Categories: Drama, Performance Art, International. From Iran Saye Theatre. Written by Mehdi Mashhour. Directed by Mehdi Mashhour.
FROM THE ARTIST:
Coming to New York all the way from Tehran. It is the first show from Iran in USA. Appreciated in 9th Donzdorf International Theatre Festival - 2015 Germany.
Elena K Holy :"Unlike any other company in the world, the Saye Theatre showcases Middle Eastern themes that are contemporary in Iran with unparalleled authenticity.” She continues, “The Door focuses on the topic of immigration through the eyes of two Middle Eastern women. Specifically, the Saye Theatre uses traditional Persian theatrical themes and incorporates the influence of Persian movement and identity to create these female characters, who both experience light and dark. The duality of light and darkness has always existed in the fundamental belief of Iranians; light representing the essence of life which is consciousness, and darkness representing non life which is form.”
“The production will be the first Iranian play to take part in FringeNYC, providing a rare opportunity for thousands of Fringe festival audience members to glimpse into Middle Eastern theatre.”
