Iran, Germany to stage ‘Border’ in May

TEHRAN, Jan. 19 (MNA) – Iran and Germany have co-produced a play called ‘Border’ that will go on stage in both countries in coming months.

Jafar Mahyari, leader of the theater group, who is currently in Germany, will stage a play titled ‘Border’ in Tehran and Berlin in May 2016, co-produced with the German theater company Nunerplats.

Mahyari who has co-directed and co-written 'Border' with German Britta Schramm, said the play depicts the conflict between two groups over the borders across their territories but after a series of events, peace and friendship will ultimately settle between them.

Noting that the play has a cosmopolitan concept, Mahyari added “in 'Border', the actual essence and necessity of the existence of borders is brought into question. Other concepts and notions are also raised that are highly significant from a moral and humanitarian point of view.”

“Border has no dialog and relies on movements only. We have highlighted the use of body language and the combination of light, music, attires and décor have made the play more like an art performance,” he said.

According to Mahyari, 'Border' is scheduled to go on stage in Tehran in May and June, 2016. Germany will host the play in July.

The play features Saeed Abbak, Anahita Safikhani, Bernd Stolberger, and Kristina Forster.
