In his new work, Nassim continues to challenge the conventions surrounding the roles of writer, performer and audience within his work.Nassim is a play in two languages. Persian, Nassim’s mother tongue, and one other dependent on where the show is performed – perhaps one that Nassim has learnt to master, like English, or one he’s never spoken, like Mandarin.

Every night a different actor is invited to perform a cold-read of Nassim. Using language and performance to reflect collectively on the power of words and how they shape who we are, Nassim explores questions of identity, perspective and social relationships over the course of a clever, playful and touching 80 minutes of theatre that goes right to the source of our need for telling stories: to learn from each other and shape our view of the world.
