The House is Black Media Project is Iranian American artist Sussan Deyhim’s multimedia examination of the work of Forough Farrokhzad, one of Iran’s most influential feminist poets and filmmakers. Travel through a visual, sonic and theatrical journey into the heart of Forough’s prophetic vision, which is as relevant today as it was half a century ago. This thrilling production, first seen at Royce Hall in 2015, features a Persian and Western-influenced score by Deyhim and Golden Globe-winning composer Richard Horowitz.
