The House is Black 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.
