Iranian performance artist Yaser Khaseb has crafted a show devised of several movement-based pieces, making the language barrier inconsequential. He begins with a look at traditional Persian performance, offering insight into a people with a rich history and encouraging the audience to find human connection through the act of pure physical storytelling. Khaseb continues with a piece that explores the imaginative spirit in a modern context, using breathtaking puppetry to show us his battle with the self, and how easy it can be to lose that battle. Khaseb then moves outside of time to delve into the primal nature of creativity itself.
