NASSIM

Experimental theatre by Nassim Soleimanpour / Iran

Nassim Soleimanpour’s WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT has been performed more than a thousand times worldwide and has been translated into more than 25 languages.  In his latest audacious experiment with the theatrical form, NASSIM explores the power of language to unite us in these uncertain times.

No rehearsals. No preparation by the actor–a different actor at every performance. Only a sealed envelope with the actor reading the script for the first time in front of us.  Oh, and some surprises.

“A different actor bounds onstage every night to open an envelope stashed inside a banker’s box: It’s the first page of the script, which will eventually unite Mr. Soleimanpour and the actor in an affectionate double act. NASSIM speaks eloquently of living and working in a place with a language not your own.”— New York Times

“A tantalizing theatrical provocation that breaks down all walls between stage and audience.”  –The Stage

“An unusually vivid celebration of theatre’s liveness”  –The Guardian

“NASSIM is exhilarating fun, but also touching, moving and soulful. It’s very entertaining and funny. The play will be different every time, but it’s a gamble worth taking. ”–The Hollywood Reporter
