The Morning of a Day after the Death of the Dear Friend

Creation 2020

An online performance by
Hossein Tavazoni-zadeh and Parastoo Ghorbani


The performance starts with two friends who are at an online rehearsal, working on the play Macbeth. Here, scattered memories of the artists’ past rupture the flow of the rehearsal. This brings the friends to realize that something or someone is missing… 

The play revolves around migration and the sense of belonging. Going back and forth between the present and the past, the performers question the nostalgic image of home: when someone leaves a given community, how do memories gradually reconstruct the image of the migrant and the ones who stay for each other?

Performed at the 1st Reconnect Festival
14  April 2020, Tehran & Groningen.
