A Reason to Talk

Why Not Theatre, Richard Jordan Productions, Saskia Liénard, Big in Belgium and KVS The Royal Flemish Theatre (Brussels, Belgium) and Kunstz co-production in association with Theatre Royal Plymouth and Summerhall

Is it a story of extremes, of bi-cultural upbringing, or is it simply the story of all mothers and daughters? Sachli Gholamalizad, a young Belgian actress of Iranian descent, questions her troubled relationship with her mother. Fusing together recordings, diary excerpts, memories, novels and soundscapes from both Belgium and Iran, Sachli dives into her family’s history and the contradictions in the lives of these three women, confronting both her mother and grandmother in a thrilling and unruly multi-media performance.


Written and Performed by Sachli Gholamalizad
Sound and Video Design by Steven Brys
