SYNOPSIS

A long table on stage, surrounded by chairs and the audience. We have not gathered here to eat but to listen stories of ordinary people. Koohestani has said that he is interested in a man as it and he does not need interpretations nor commentaries in art. That is why his theatre is simple and immobile. Recent Experiences tells the stories of one family during four generations. These are ordinary people and everyday stories which have happened on the background of the century’s big events. Koohestani’s actors do not try to be their characters but to lend their voices for them.
