No rehearsals. No preparation. Just a sealed envelope and a new actor reading a script for the first time every performance. Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour brings an audacious event that transcends borders and language.
Illuminating and playful, NASSIM invites you to celebrate the raw and unexpected in a striking theatrical demonstration of how language can divide us but also bring us together. NASSIM was produced by the Bush Theatre and opened at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival at the Traverse Theatre on 3 August 2017.
Nassim was staged at the Arts Centre Melbourne with guest performers Alison Bell, Benjamin Law, Charlie Pickering, Nakkiah Lui, Catherine McClements and Denise Scott and at Perth International Arts Festival with guest performers Scarlett Stevens, Andrea Gibbs, Humphrey Bower, Richard Fidler, Kelton Pell, Matt Dyktynski and Sisonke Msimang.
Daily Telegraph (UK) describes it as ‘Entertaining, ingeniously thought-provoking and fully heart-warming.’
