Hamid Pourazari is one of the most exciting independent theatre makers working in Iran. His work with some of Tehran’s most marginalised communities is visceral, visual and unashamedly bold. Following an inspiring introduction in Tehran, LIFT commissioned Hamid with Perpanata Theatre Company, to create a new work with refugees and local residents in one of London’s most contrasting boroughs, Croydon, where wealthy commuters nestle alongside refugee communities. Through poetic storytelling and inventive promenade performance, Hamid will reveal some of the hidden and moving stories of refugees whose lives are currently in limbo, all within the concrete confines of a city car park in Croydon.

 

Commissioned by LIFT and presented in association with Perpanata Theatre Company as part of the London 2012 Festival.
