$25 in advance | $30 at the door

A unique collaboration of storytelling combining spoken word, movement, video and music between Marina Nemat and MOTUS O Dance Theatre. The show is a multi-disciplinary performance based on her bestselling book, “Prisoner of Tehran” that deals with social justice on the theme of oppression and freedom.

Marina Nemat was born in 1965 in Tehran, Iran. After the Islamic Revolution of 1979, she was arrested at the age of sixteen and spent more than two years in Evin, a political prison in Tehran, where she was tortured and came very close to execution. She came to Canada in 1991 and has called it home ever since.
