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

Surprising, disarming, and ultimately moving, NASSIM is a cleverly constructed theatrical game that forges a delicate connection between strangers in real time.
Sydney Morning Herald

Nassim is the epitome of what stage art can do. It's a beautiful, fun and well-deserved story - a unique ‘here-and-now' experience.
Anne Louise Slott Thorborg, Den 4. Væg

Nassim is a play for innovators, dreamers, and people who aim to break boundaries. It’s a breeze, it’s a delight, and it is a must watch.

Nassim Soleimanpour in association with Bush Theatre


[[Experimental Theatre///Experimentelles Theater]]

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

[[From Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour comes an audacious new theatrical experiment. Each night a different performer joins the playwright on stage, while the script waits unseen in a sealed box…

Touchingly autobiographical yet powerfully universal, NASSIM is a striking theatrical demonstration of how language can both divide and unite us.

NASSIM follows Soleimanpour’s globally acclaimed White Rabbit Red Rabbit, which has been translated into over 25 different languages and performed over 1,000 times by names including Stephen Fry, Ken Loach and Whoopi Goldberg.///Der iranische Dramatiker Nassim Soleimanpour entwickelt ein weiteres kühnes neues Theaterexperiment: Jeden Abend kommt ein anderer Performer auf die Bühne, während das Skript ungesehen in einer versiegelten Box wartet ...

Berührend autobiographisch und dennoch machtvoll universell, ist NASSIM eine eindrucksvolle theatralische Demonstration davon, wie Sprache uns sowohl trennen als auch vereinen kann.

NASSIM folgt Soleimanpours weltweit gefeiertem Weisses Kaninchen Rotes Kaninchen, das in über 25 verschiedene Sprachen übersetzt und über 1.000 Mal von großen Namen wie Stephen Fry, Ken Loach und Whoopi Goldberg gespielt wurde.]]
