Being in Iran

Bára Sigfúsdóttir on tour

As a poetic generator of subtext, the moving body can express different layers of sensations and experiences. In being, Bára Sigfúsdóttir uses this body as the common ground to explore and to put in dialogue the West-European with the Iranian identity.

In May, Bára Sigfúsdóttir, Eivind Lønning, Masoumeh Jalalieh and Alireza Mirmohammadi will travel to Iran for a short mini-tour of the works being and TIDE. First stop will be the Iran International University Theater Festival in Tehran where they will be performing being on May 11+14 and TIDE on May 12+13 at Molavi Hall. Later on, Bára, Masoumeh and Alireza will travel to Sari to have another performance of being at the Black Box Theater.
