The First Iranian Literary Arts Festival and ICARUS/RISE


Niloufar Talebi and The Translation Project are the forces behind a really cool event going on in San Francisco this week: the inaugural Iranian Literary Arts Festival, which features film screenings and the world premiere of ICARUS/RISE, a multimedia play inspired by contemporary Iranian poetry. Entry to the festival comes with buying a ticket to the play (tix are $50 if you’re not a student – a little steep but the play looks amazing). Beyond Persia is also sponsoring the event; see their page on it for the best info and links to buy tickets.
