'Things Hidden Since the Foundation of the World'
Javaad Alipoor Company

Co-commissioned by HOME and The National Theatre of Parramatta, Australia

An investigation into the nature of investigation, with the unsolved murder of a pop icon at its centre…

It’s the 1970’s and Fereydoun Farrokhzad’s star is blazing bright – he’s a sex symbol and chart-topping pop singer – imagine an Iranian Tom Jones. A decade on and he’s living in political exile in Germany, though still performing to sold-out audiences in Europe.

On 7 August 1992. he’s found brutally murdered. The neighbours said his dogs had been barking for two nights.

“A dazzlingly complex show that unpicks the way our very thinking can be conditioned by the tools we use and by the assumptions of both those constructing them and using them.”

“A fascinating, knotty and elusive piece, darting about from one art form to another.”
