NASSIM

Nassim Soleimanpour in association with Bush Theatre

Iran

[[Experimental Theatre///Experimentelles Theater]]

 

Dear performer. I want to show you something. Did you know, in Farsi my
name is written like this:  ‘.ROUPNAMIELOS MISSAN si eman yM’

Did you know Nassim means ‘breeze’ in Farsi? From Iranian playwright
Nassim Soleimanpour, comes an audacious theatrical experiment that
explores the power of language to unite us in unknown, uncertain times.

No rehearsals. No preparation. Just a sealed envelope and an actor
reading a script for the first time. Plus some tomatoes. And on stage
himself, the playwright who took Broadway by storm.

Since its joint premiere in 2011, in Edinburgh and Toronto,
Soleimanpour’s play White Rabbit Red Rabbit has been translated into 25
different languages and performed over 1000 times by some of the biggest
names in theatre and film, including Sinead Cusack, Ken Loach and Whoopi
Goldberg.

Just as each performer arrives unprepared on the day, audiences will
also surprised by who is performing alongside Nassim.
 

"A tantalising theatrical provocation that breaks down all walls between stage and audience." The Stage

"As he heightens the audience's sense of complicity in his art, Soleimanpour makes a quietly persuasive case for theatre's special power to foster empathy." ★★★★ London Evening Standard
