Prisoner of Tehran

Monday March 20, 2023  7:30pm

Prisoner of Tehran, based on the book of the same name, is a unique collaboration between Iranian born writer/speaker Marina Nemat and MOTUS O. This unique performance piece is a synthesis of theatre, video and storytelling that brushes on themes of oppression, persecution, survival and most of all HOPE.

After the Islamic Revolution of 1979, Marina was arrested at the age of sixteen and spent more than two years in Evin, a political prison in Tehran, where she was tortured and came very close to execution. She came to Canada in 1991 and has called it home ever since. Marina’s book Prisoner of Tehran has been published in 28 other countries and is an international bestseller.

No Intermission. Q&A following the 60-minute performance.
