Shaghayegh Cyrous and Siavash Jamshidi






July 29, 2017, 7-9p Sliding Scale/Suggested Donation: $10 advance, $15 at the door, No one turned away for lack of funds

Each culture has a symbol that represents power. One of the traditional Iranian symbols for power is the cypress tree, signifying freedom and truth. Though standing upright, some say it bends its head in humility showing respect for Pahlivan – a person even stronger than the cypress.

For one night only, Shaghayegh presents a participatory installation exploring imagery and sound sourced from traditionally all male Iranian gyms called Zoorkhaneh (House of Power). Playing with gendered notions of strength, she invites people to create and share their own ideas of power.
