Dear friends,

Happy Norouz to you all! The Persian New Year is an ancient ritual acknowledging new light and energy source to cleanse much that we all carry in our hearts, psyche and are so concerned about. It's wonderful to be humbled by the seasonal beauty of our planet and never take it for granted.

"When there's there's life there's hope" Stephen Hawkings

Happy New Year!



My media stage production "The House is Black" had its world premiere at The Center for the Art of Performance at Royce Hall, UCLA in late Jan. Once again thank you to our LA audience for an unforgettable premiere! We were blessed with your overwhelming response and we are grateful to you! For those of you interested in knowing more about the project, its brilliant cast of collaborators including Co-Director, Dramaturge Robert Egan , Composer Richard Horowitz, Lighting Designer Anne Militello (just to name a few) and would like to see some of the images from our Royce Hall premiere, please check out the production's web page.

Turbulent

TURBULENT
Sussan Deyhim Shirin Neshat

As a composer and performance artist, I;ve been looking for those rare occasions wherer a moment or situation freezes all thought processes and rhetorical rationalizations. All my soundscapes for Shirin Neshat have been romantic journeys into a deep sone, searching for universal, sonic metaphors to evoke language from her silent narrative abstractions; creating a space which travels beyond referential codes and transcends into the hyper-real, the surreal and the timeless
