GENERAL INFORMATION ON THE KINGDOM OF FIRE AND CLAY
Two young artists meet. One is an Israeli, the other an Iranian. Sworn enemies, or possible best friends?
Having performed in individually highly successful shows at the International Storytelling Festival Amsterdam in 2012, the two decided to combine forces and create a show delving into their pasts, their cultures and the source of enmity between their countries.
The Kingdom of Fire and Clay combines classical Jewish and Persian (Iranian) tales with the personal modern-day stories of Raphael Rodan (Israel) and Sahand Sahebdivani (Iran). Spoken texts are punctuated and accompanied by the music of Anastasis Sarakatsanos and Bas Kisjes. Moments of friction alternate with mutual intimacy.
The show premiered at the International Storytelling Festival Amsterdam in November 2013 and had a short tour in the Netherlands. Performances will be held in Amsterdam and The Hague in February 2014, followed by a longer tour in the UK in March.
The Kingdom of Fire and Clay is a performance by Sahand Sahebdivani, Raphael Rodan, Anastasis Sarakatsanos and Bas Kisjes.
In October 2012 STET featured Raphael and Anastasis in the show When Abel met Cain, which was to great acclaim staged in The Hague’s Humanity House.
Produced by the International Storytelling Festival of Amsterdam.
This production is supported by the PERSIAN DUTCH NETWORK an independent socio-cultural network which is dedicated to introduce Persian (Iranian) culture in The Netherlands and also making Dutch and Persians more closer to each other. Persian Dutch Network has no political and religious affiliation.
