ONE THOUSAND AND ONENIGHTS. Scheherazade 1979
Wojtek Faruga and Magda Fertacz's Project inspired by One Thousand and One Nights, and the life and work of Oriana Fallaci. We will take a look at the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran through the lens of these old Persiantales. The play is inspired by Oriana Fallaci's visit to Tehran as a reporter to interview Ayatollah Khomeini.
Fallaci Orly spent a few nights in Tehran, but one was special – when Her safety was at risk after she had dared to unveil her hair in the presence of the charismatic leader. Like a modern – day Scheherazade, Fallaci will fight for Her right to live through the power of her story.
Guest appearance: Krystian Łysoń as Taher–dancer, Hassan's boyfriend, opponent of etery autority
