About: Quartet: A Journey North

This documentary-style performance takes us deep into the motivations of the human mind. Based on the chilling, true stories of two Iranian murderers, A Journey North resembles a cool, detached police investigation. Beneath television screens projecting their own faces, four actors sit back to back and address the audience from their own isolated spaces, offering interwoven accounts from the two murderers and two relatives of the victims.

Quartet asks the question: what is it that makes an ordinary person become a murderer?

Amir Reza Koohestani tackles political issues through poetic and allusive forms. He is known for creating work that involves face-to-face encounter, with minimalist staging that serves the words, the language and a smooth, impassive acting style. Dance on Glasses (2001) was highly successful in Iran, going on to tour around Europe. He was seen in the UK in 2005 with Amid the Clouds at the Royal Court.
