“If you caught The Believers Are But Brothers or Rich Kids: A History of Shopping Malls in Tehran, you will know that Javaad Alipoor is skilled at melding technology and theatre to examine how we see the world. Arriving from Home in Manchester is the final standalone part of the trilogy which considers the limitless amount of information available on the internet, the nature of investigation, true crime podcasts and what gets lost in translation when the world is seen through Western eyes. Alipoor joins forces with co-writer Chris Thorpe to weave a story about the Iranian popstar Fereydoun Farrokhzad who in 1992 was found dead in Bonn, Germany where he had fled as a refugee. The case has never been solved. Can we ever really know what happened?”

Overview

It’s the 1970s and Fereydoun Farrokhzad’s star is blazing bright – he’s a sex symbol and chart-topping pop singer – imagine an Iranian Tom Jones. A decade on and he’s living in political exile in Germany, though still performing to sold-out audiences in Europe.

On 7 August 1992, he’s found brutally murdered. The neighbours said his dogs had been barking for two nights.

‘Things Hidden’ is a thrilling ride down the rabbit hole of Wikipedia and murder mystery podcasts, sorting through the tangle of information available online in a post-colonial world to reveal the limits of the search engines in solving a decades old cold case.

All performances of ‘Things Hidden Since the Foundation of the World’ are Pay What You Can with a Recommended Price of £16

Age Recommendation: 14+
