CINEMA is a new theatrical experience that explores the human and political aftermath of the Cinema Rex Fire in Abadan, Iran in 1978.

Performed and created by UK based Iranian artist, Nazli Tabatabai-Khatambakhsh, the play remembers the lives and people behind the numbers and the news stories. It was an event that changed Iran’s political course, and would lead to the revolution of 1979.

CINEMA is tender and explosive, interwoven with an original score, potent projections and delicious language.

ZENDEH creates award-winning, unforgettable theatre that connects the personal with the political.

After each show there will be a brief post-show discussion, we would love it if you would join us.

This event will take place in the STUN studio at Z-arts
