“Iran Conference” is a relevant play which provokes thought. In Copenhagen, nine specialists of different areas meet at the symposium to discuss the problems of the Middle East and Iran, such as death penalty torture and the other types of violations of personal rights and liberty. The intellectuals read their papers on the stage, but the discussion soon diverts from sociopolitical aspects to such topics as ethical differences, spirituality, personal traumas and dilemmas pertinent to contemporary social crises. Their statements provoke the sensitive discussion about the relevant problems and their treatment among the various cultures. These statements also deal with the future of our civilization.
“Iran Conference” is a courageous attempt to reach the solutions, to search for the essential human values, to start the discussion over the topics that we would like to avoid. The rich language of the play helps to create the intimate and poetic polylogue about the meaning of life, its challenges and hopes. The audience can evaluate the different views and their opposition in contemporary discussions about religion, politics and social problems all over the world.
