Please join me at Freer Sackler Gallery in the Smithsonian Museum, for a very special event in Washington DC.
Renowned composer, vocalist, and performance artist Sussan Deyhim presents excerpts from her stage production The House is Black Media recently presented at Royce Hall CAPUCLA and her art installation Dawn of the Cold Season. Both productions were inspired by the work of legendary feminist poet Forough Farrokhzad (1935 - 1967). Following a screening of Farrokhzad's groundbreaking documentary The House is Black (Iran, 1962, 22 min.), Deyhim talks about her own ongoing projects and Farrokhzad's enduring influence on Iranian art and culture.
