“Sussan Deyhim is one of Iran’s most potent voices in exile. She wails and coos and ululates, the sound of the soul in translation.” —Los Angeles Times

The creative visions of two of Iran’s most fiercely creative female artists converge on stage in this mesmerizing multimedia tribute to the late Forough Farrokhzad, the irrepressible feminist poet and filmmaker. Performance artist and composer Sussan Deyhim, whose vocals can be heard in films such as Argo and The Kite Runner, combines visual projections, archival footage—including Farrokhzad’s 1965 interview with Bernardo Bertolucci—and an original score, cowritten with Golden Globe–winning composer Richard Horowitz, in this gripping homage.
