Teheran Mon Amour
Turbinehallerne ift the festival ”Hitparaden” Live Art Danmark 2014
Stora Teatern, Göteborg, Sverige 2014
A performance about the situation of homosexual men in Iran today. It opens with the intial screening of the film: A re-make of one of the greatest love stories on film: ”Hiroshima, mon amour”. But instead of a frensh woman and a japanese man, two men –one scandinavian, one persian occupies the leading roles.
Just like in the original, we never learn how they meet, as the story begins right after the two of them has spend a night together at a hotel in Teheran.
In the original from 1959 the love affair is complicated and impossible.
In the this version set in Teheran 2012 the love affair is punishable by death.
