Things Hidden Since The Foundation of the World

Making its world premiere in January, Things Hidden Since the Foundation of the World takes stories beyond the stage through powerful multi-platform creations, exploring the intersection of politics and technology in the contemporary world with a first view of both live and digital performances of this work. The production will be presented at Riverside Theatres’ from 14th January to Sunday 23rd January 2022.

Fereydoun Farrokhzad was the Middle East's greatest popstar of the ‘70s (think Tom Jones or Freddy Mercury). By 1981 he was a refugee, working in a German grocers. Six months before being found brutally murdered in an unsolved case, he performed to sold out audiences over two nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

In a world of murder mystery podcasts, Wikipedia and an Internet that presents everything in the world as knowable, we need to understand that some worlds never collide. A world where the guy serving you in a grocers is bigger than Tom Jones, the world where you can be killed for what you sing, the world of everyday life where a hit squad only belongs in the movies.
