The Broad Stage - The Edye



“A deceptively simple meditation on language, home and theatre itself” – Financial Times, London

Touchingly autobiographical yet powerfully universal, NASSIM is a striking theatrical illustration of how language can both divide and unite us. Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour offers an audacious new theatrical experiment in which a different performer joins the playwright on stage each night, while the script waits unseen in a sealed box... 


Nassim Soleimanpour (playwright and performer) is an independent multidisciplinary theatre maker best known for his multi award-winning play White Rabbit Red Rabbit. Nassim’s play BLANK premiered in the UK at the Bush Theatre’s RADAR festival in 2015, also playing in Amsterdam and Utrecht with further performances all over the world including at the Edinburgh Fringe and in Argentina, Australia and India. Further plays include Blind Hamlet which premiered at LIFT Festival 2014 prior to a UK tour and productions in Bucharest and Copenhagen. Nassim now lives in Berlin and has been commissioned to write a new play for Teater Momentum (Denmark) and the audiobook platform Audible.
