Production Details / Press Releases
THERE ARE EVENTS IN LIFE THAT CHANGE EVERYTHING. Sudden, unforeseeable turning points, after which a return to the previous state is no longer possible and the consequences for the future are not yet foreseeable. Biographies, societies and even history are no longer the same. Aftermath describes the momentum of these moments that change everything that has gone before forever.
Can these moments be evoked, manifested as gestures or language, in our bodies or through the media? With dance, language, sound and image, Mashaherifard’s collective tehran re:public explores this phenomenon of the intervening period. tehran re:public is a Berlin performance collective that deals with the body, text and choreography and experiments at the interface of theatre, dance and performance.
AMIRHOSSEIN MASHAHERIFARD studied directing in Tehran and scenic research in Bochum. He is a member of the Berlin collective tehran re:public.
