White Rabbit Red Rabbit
Forbidden to leave his native Iran, Nassim Soleimanpour wrote a play which travelled the world in his place: one with no rehearsals, no director, a different actor each night, and a sealed script. The script – first handed to the actor as they step on stage – is performed almost completely unprepared: the actor is told only to bring a bottle of water and prepare an animal impression, and the audience is encouraged to come into the piece with as little knowledge of the night’s proceedings as possible. Out of this comes a truly immediate experience, and an atmosphere laden with precarious volatility - ultimately it is only Soleimanpour who controls the performance, and he leaves much to chance.
