BLANK at Ithaca Festival 2017

Many Ithaca audiences first got to know The Cherry when we presented the regional premiere of Nassim Soleimanpour’s WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT to sold-out audiences in 2015 at Circus Culture. We reprised it by popular demand at the 2016 Ithaca Festival. And now we’re thrilled to be bringing exciting theatre back to the Ithaca Festival in 2017 with another piece by this innovative Iranian playwright!

With WHITE RABBIT RED RABIT, Soleimanpour created theatre without set, director or rehearsals. With BLANK, he takes his artistic experiment to the next level: an unfinished story to be completed live on stage as a collaborative effort of performer, audience, and playwright. A different professional actor will perform at each show, having never seen the script before.
