The Translation Project presents, in partnership with Beyond Persia, the Iranian Literary Arts Festival, a week of films, panels, parties, art, gala celebration and the world premier of ICARUS/RISE, a theatrical show based on new Iranian poetry.

ICARUS/RISE connects the myth of Icarus with the migration of Iranians, and the solitary journey of the artist/migrant in the quest for freedom. ICARUS/RISE begins after the fall and is the journey to self-possession, featuring the emerging voices of Iranian poetry, including Shahrouz Rashid,the poet of "Icarus". Created by Niloufar Talebi, original score by Bobak Salehi, choreography and video by Alex Ketley. See for more details.

Tickets for ICARUS/RISE range from $35-$50 for Thursday 11/15 and Friday 11/16 and $185 for Saturday 11/17 gala celebration. Tickets entitle purchasers to films, panels, and parties throughout the week. Call City Box Office 415/392-4400.
