Teatro Buffo

As we travel northwards Hamlet has become a dominant frame for this live fiction. I haven’t thought it through just yet, but I sense an enormous potential in our plot line. We have taken up the structural position of the theatre company in Hamlet, which enacts the truth within the fiction. Now the question is how far we can go in real life while playacting. And -- whether we will be allowed to enact scenes with Ahmadinejad in the audience.

This teatro buffo arrived yesterday evening in Shiraz in a mini bus. Nielsen and Altheimer play the leading roles. Jaleh P has the part as the interpreter (romantic subplot?). Meysahm acts the cameraman. The extra Majid is our driver. The chorus is made up by the Iranian people.
