TEHRAN, July 8 (MNA) -- UNESCO has announced that it will be supporting the Iranian play “Where Stops Heaven” until 2010.

Iranian play “Where Stops Heaven” written by Naghmeh Samini and directed by Ali Razi is registered on the list of UNESCO projects in the International Year of Languages.


This is the first time such an event is happening to an Iranian drama, director Razi told the Persian service of ISNA.


The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 2008 to be the International Year of Languages in May 2007.


“Ali Razi works with actors from different nationalities and his play consists of multilingual documents. The musical combination of Persian, Spanish, French, English and Chinese languages has made a dreamlike play out of the drama”, writes the UNESCO website.


“Where Stops Heaven” was staged last spring in Paris and will have more performances in several other European countries this autumn.


The play, which is a combination of stage acting and puppet theater, features one of the oldest dreams of mankind, portraying his views towards the world and the universe.
