An evening of works in development by Rattlestick’s Directing Fellow, Shadi Ghaheri
A FREE EVENT!
Rattlestick will be hosting a night to showcase some of the work currently in development by their Directing Fellow, Shadi Ghaheri. The evening will be an informal, fun night, and an opportunity to meet new artists.
The evening includes three excerpts of work that Shadi is very excited to share with her new audience in New York City. The first piece will be a new devised work by Shadi, Shahr-e-Farang, a cruel clown show exercising the absurdity of our social and political state of being. The second work is a translation by Shadi, Slow Sound of Snow, written by Jaber Ramezani, a contemporary Iranian playwright based in Tehran. This excerpt boldly illustrates a metaphoric world of oppression and censorship. The night will end with a short choreographed movement piece set to Handel’s opera, Lucretia.
The showing will be followed by a reception.
