4 t/m 5 August 2017

In [Not] My Paradise the Flemish theatre maker Sachli Gholamalizad [Anzali, 1982] travels to Iran, where she was born. She interrogates her uncles, who cheerfully share their stories of Sachli’s grandfather. He owned a frivolous nightclub where divas danced in a daze of alcohol. In addition to former nightclubbers, Sachli also interviews her grandmother – who doesn’t seem too sad to be widowed – and a suspicious aunt. Sachli Gholamalizad is loosening soil that has been firmly tamped down. Breathing new life into old stories of love, murder and kinship.
[Not] My Paradise is an intricate web of performance, documentary images and interviews and deals with the fluid nature of identity. At Boulevard 2016 Sachli Gholamalizad performed the much-praised A reason to talk.

There are free shuttle busses available from the festivalsquare to the location of the show. These busses leave half an hour before the show starts.
