This podcast is a conversation with Peter Pirhosseinlou Iranian musician, sound artist ,and music organizer. My dialogue with him revolves around issues such as the relationship between music and meaning, the nature of meaning in music, and the audience’s musical experience. In his music, his main priority is to build a mutual bound with his audience as every other possible influence is conditioned to this bound. One of the main interests of the artist is the moments in music that he calls “happenings”,occurring in the process of  creating a musical piece and go beyond planned technical considerations and control-based techniques of making music.

Theater as a Mode of Dissent  / [FA]  تئاتر هنر معترض

Theater as a Mode of Dissent

Mohammad Yaghoubi is a multi-award-winning playwright, director, screenwriter, and theater instructor. He is also  the co-founder of Nowadays Theater which is a non-profit theater company in Toronto, Canada. In this podcast, our conversation revolves around the issue of theater and what Yaghoubi believes is the inherent correlation of theater with politics, ethics, truth, and freedom. Inspired by Greek tragedies which were heavily dependent on philosophy and litrature as their indispensable attributes, Yaghoubi contributes to a theater where the human situation is taken seriously, a form of theater that abstains to surrender to pure aesthetic inclinations. Having been disappointed by those thinkers, such as Russian theater practitioner Konstantin Stanislavsky, who consider theater as an autonomous form of art detached from philosophy, politics, and society, Yaghoubi characterizes theater as a mode of dissent. In this sense, Mohammad Yaghoubi recognizes theater as an inherently socio-political phenomenon which casts doubt over apparently unquestionable axiomatic principles which have constructed social norms and shaped our understanding of the truth. Through engaging in theater either as a playwright or director, Yaghoubi attempts to raise questions about claimed eternal truths and so-called realities imposed upon the individual. His primary concern as a playwright is to lighten the shoulders of his audiences of the burden of these forced truths and historically accumulated narrations.
