Loosely based on the story of the boxing of some statues at the Capitoline Museums. The boxes
are a pretext. It starts from hiding, from subtraction. But during the action, between theatre and
installation, the containers become allegories, slowly revealing characters and symbols. The title of
the performance is also the name of the official language of Iran. It is a tribute to the millenial
history of Persia, cradle of civilization, recalled during the performance by the poems of Persian
poet Omar Khayyam.
Through the actions of four actors, the music, the poetry, the symbols, the sentences intersecting
Western and Persian alphabets, spectators also go through the concept of “no contact”. What is
freedom today?
