Autumn Dance

August 5, 2017
7:30 pm

Written, directed, and performed by Shabnam Tolouei. Autumn Dance is a play that follows three tormented Iranian women experiencing exile, even while living in their own country. Bita, a journalist, and Mojdeh, a prostitute, are both imprisoned in Iran's infamous Evin prison. The third, Yekta, lives in exile in Paris. The simple elegance of the play allows the audience to be transported from Tehran to Paris, to uncover the connection between these three women. The program will last approximately 95 minutes (without intermission) and will be performed in Persian with English subtitles visible to half of the studio. All three roles are played by Shabnam Tolouei, an award-winning actress, playwright, and director. Born in Tehran, she was forced into exile and currently lives and works in France. Presented by the Hamid and Christina Moghadam Program in Iranian Studies and the Stanford Festival of Iranian Arts. Due to content intended for mature audiences, this performance is not appropriate for children under the age of 16.
