November 13, 2014 The performance examines a current topic between Iran and the West, namely what are the images that we have of ‘the Other’, and to what extent fears, fantasies and imaginations are based on truth. By initiating a direct meeting with the Other and listening to each other’s stories, this group aims to create new images, based on the stories of the people who wouldn’t usually make the headlines. The piece is a multi-media, highly physical, speech performance. It includes the actors’ own stories, dialogue between the actors, video installations with short documentaries about daily life in the countries of origin of the actors, and video collages of cultural milestones from these cultures. The physical form of the piece produces a third language.
