White Rabbit Red Rabbit By Nassim Soleimanpour

BY The Street Theatre | 05-May-2014
Imagine being 29 and unable to leave your country... Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour's audacious theatrical experiment will come as a shock - not least to the performer handed the script the moment they walk on stage. A different unsuspecting performer will take the stage each night, joining the audience on a journey into the unknown; stumbling upon the humorous, terrifying and utterly personal. This internationally acclaimed new work dissecting the experience of a whole generation in Iran forges connections across time and continents. We just can't promise everyone will make it out alive. No rehearsals. No director. No set. An unnerving comedy of human freedom that defies national boundaries, censorship... and description.

Performers: Eliza Bell, Nick Byrne, Raoul Craemer, Geraldine Turner, Kat Bhathena Originally produced by Volcano Theatre in Association with Aurora Nova Productions and Necessary Angel. Dramaturgy by Ross Manson and Daniel Brooks. "...hilarious, thoughtful and - in the best possible way - entirely uncomfortable. This is a potent reminder of the transgressive, transformative power of theatre...There's magic here, and while it can't be bottled, you can certainly buy yourself an hour in its presence" CRIKEY "This performance has heart and challenges the audience ever so gently to think about our choices and how lucky we are in this safe and relaxed country" HERALD SUN "...there's a magnetic mind behind the prose. Rabbit is a lightly comic, deceptively discursive, meta-theatrical monologue" SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE "Wildly unpredictable and completely unforgettable, White Rabbit, Red Rabbit is a punch in the air for self-expression; a testament to the power of words to transcend cultures and borders. You have to be there" NEW ZEALAND HERALD Street 2 - unreserved | Duration - 60 minutes.
