The man and woman are seated, each at the far end of a four meters long table.
Spectators in the audience sit facing one another listening to them.
They are just talking. He keeps asking: “Are you afraid when you dance on the glasses?” The more he hassles her the more she withdraws; the more he tries to trap her the more she runs away.
Dance on Glasses is the third play by Amir Reza Koohestani. His writing is new, vivid and sharp: passion for giving everything hides the desire to control it all; persistent refusal reveals the hunger to be free.
Even if it means getting lost.
It might be an Iranian story, but the battle is universal.
