Farajpur heading to Poland for stage performance

TEHRAN, May 8 (MNA) -- Iranian director Mehdi Farajpur is heading to Poland on Sunday to stage a play there in collaberation with Polish artists.

He will be staying for two months and will be working with ten artists on a play being penned by an American writer, Farajpur told the Persian service of ISNA.


The play centers on events from various wars from around the world such as those in Bosnia and Afghanistan, and World War II.


Farajpur, back from his project in Paris, said that he staged the Butoh Dance style of performance in Paris, and added, “All the cast were from South Korea and I acted as the director, and also as an actor on stage.”


Butoh is the collective name for a diverse range of activities, techniques and motivations for a dance, performance, or movement inspired by the Ankoku-Butoh movement.


It typically involves playful and grotesque imagery, extreme or absurd environments, and is traditionally “performed” in white-body makeup with slow hyper-controlled motion, with or without an audience.  There is no set style, and it may be purely conceptual with no movement at all.


Farajpur staged his Indian theatrical dance performance “Sudalaiyadi,” a cooperative project of India and Iran at Tehran’s 26th Fajr International Theater Festival last year.
