THE BITING SCHOOL (CANADA)

From PuSh Artists-in-Residence The Biting School comes this take on a major work of Iranian theatre. Abbas Nalbandian’s 1971 Suddenly, This God Lover Died in the Love of God, This God Slain Died by the Sword of God was too radical for acceptance in its home country; bringing it to Vancouver is an act of resurrection. The text is centred on a communal house in one of Tehran’s poor areas, and it’s a trenchant examination of greed, envy and animus.
