NOWADAYS THEATRE present English premier of “Dance of Torn Papers” with diverse artists.
“Dance of Torn Papers” is an meta theatrical episodic play, including 10 short plays that mix realism and surrealism. Each of the episodes takes place in the same hotel room, but revolves around a different relationship: a husband and wife on the edge of separation, a couple working through the consequences of a tragic accident, two brothers with different feelings about their familial obligations, etc. Thematically, the play centres on stories of trust, loss, responsibility, and fear, which resonate amongst people of all ages, creeds, races and religions.
“Dance of Torn Papers” is one of the most recognized plays in Iran. It was named “Best Play” by the National Critics Association of Iran (1999) and received awards for “Best Direction” and “Best Play” at the 17th Fajr International Theatre Festival.
This project has been made possible through the generous support of the Toronto Arts Council, and the Ontario Arts Council.
