Burnt City Comes to UNI Interpreters Theatre, Mar. 5-7

Posted on Wednesday, February 12th, 2020
Burnt City (or شهر سوخته) is a dystopian bilingual one-Persian show about U.S.-Iran relations, created and performed by Joshua Hamzehee.
 
This performance uses poetry, humor, video, and Farsi to excavate how domestic abuse at home is congruous to violence inflicted by governments on citizens. And, yes, it is a comedy... of horrors! The Plot: It's 2032 (or ۱۴۱۲). Deported to Shahr-e Sukhte, Iran, U.S.-born Kurosh is alarmed: It's an apocalyptic graveyard! To escape ghosts, gaslights & gods he must unearth: WHAT'S BLOOD GOT TO DO WITH IT?
