Award winning international show in Danish Grob


Why: No performance of NASSIM is like the last, because every day there’s a new actor on stage, for whom the text is new. It’s not  rehearsal but a show that has garnered international awards and gives the audience a unique opportunity to sense the innermost nature of the stage and the notion that art arises in the now, at the very moment we are in our seats and work with the actors to bring the words to life in the space around us. It is also a profoundly moving, personal story by a contemporary Iranian dramatist about the power of language to bring us together and drive us apart. This is a unique opportunity for a rare insight into the stage’s innermost soul.


Dear performer. I want to show you something…

From Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour comes an audacious new theatrical experiment. Each night a different performer joins the playwright on stage, while the script waits unseen in a sealed box…

Touchingly autobiographical yet powerfully universal, NASSIM is a striking theatrical demonstration of how language can both divide and unite us.

NASSIM follows Soleimanpour’s globally acclaimed White Rabbit Red Rabbit, which has been translated into over 25 different languages and performed over 1,000 times all over the world.

A Bush Theatre and Nassim Soleimanpour production.
