One woman, two passports, and two names: Peyvand is British, and Parisa is Iranian. As a child, Peyvand visited Iran with her father. They're held by the Iranian government, unable to return to the UK... Peyvand eventually returns (and makes a show about it). But what of Parisa?
An award-winning work performed solo, made in collaboration with a multinational team featuring drag, animation, puppetry, and the voice of Pedar. Peyvand and Parisa fracture and multiply to an Anglo-Persian pop soundtrack as they ask how they can be advocates for themselves and allies to each other.
