Dear performer. I want to show you something.
Did you know, in Farsi my name is written like this: ‘.ROUPNAMIELOS 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 more than 1,000 times by names including Stephen Fry, Ken Loach and Whoopi Goldberg.
Written and Performed by Nassim Soleimanpour

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