“Utopia” actress hopes play can find way to Tehran stage

TEHRAN, May 15 (MNA) -- Stage actress Elham Korda expressed hope that “Utopia,” a joint production of Iran, France and Japan, will someday get the opportunity to go on stage in Tehran.

“Utopia” is the join production of Iranian Amir-Reza Kuhestani, Japanese Oriza Hirata, and French Sylvain Maurice. The play went on stage at the international performing arts festival in Tokyo in March. It already had 25 performances in five cities in France as well.


Korda noted that the Japanese and French members are also interested to stage the play in Iran and she hoped the Dramatic Arts Center would cooperate in its performance there.


The play goes on stage with nine actors with each director bringing three actors onto the stage. The Iranian portion is performed by Elham Korda, Saeid Changizian, and Reza Behbudi.


With a prologue and epilogue by Sylvain Maurice, Amir-Reza Kuhestani’s work offers a backstage view of Oriza Hirata’s newest work, “Christmas in Tehran.” Each actor speaks his own language and in each country, the performances were accompanied by Japanese or French subtitles.


The co-production aims to bridge the barriers of language and culture to bring the theater to a state of “Utopia,” an imaginary perfect world where everyone is happy.
