The Cultch presents Nassim

Historic Theatre, 1895 Venables St07 May '19 to 19 May '19 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
  • The Cultch presents Nassim

The Cultch is thrilled to present acclaimed playwright Nassim Soleimanpour’s NASSIM at the Historic Theatre May 7-19, 2019.

Dear performer. I want to show you something…

NASSIM follows Soleimanpour’s globally acclaimed White Rabbit Red Rabbit, which has been translated into over 25 different languages, and performed over 1,000 times by names including Stephen Fry, Ken Loach and Whoopi Goldberg. This time the award-winning playwright takes the audience and performer—a different one each performance—on a surprising and intimate journey, as he introduces us to his own language, Farsi.

What starts as a simple lesson in Farsi—a way for Nassim to makes friends with the performer experiencing the script for the very first time—gently unfolds, and a beautiful story emerges; a story of love and belonging. NASSIM is the story about searching for connection, and longing for home. Touchingly autobiographical yet powerfully universal, NASSIM is a striking theatrical demonstration of how language can both divide and unite us.

Like White Rabbit, Red Rabbit, in NASSIM a different performer joins the playwright on stage as the script waits unseen in a sealed box. No stranger to The Cultch’s three stages, local performers who have stepped up to this unique challenge, are among those most beloved by Cultch patrons: Carmen Aguirre, Adam Grant Warren, Maiko Yamamoto, Marcus Youssef, Craig Erickson, Christine Quintana, Dawn Petten, Pippa Mackie, Quelemia Sparrow, Tetsuro Shigematu, Conor Wylie, and Donna Soares. Every show will be a unique experience, as each performer brings their own style and experiences to the performance.
