Ehsan Hemat, born in Shiraz and based in Brussels for several years, came up with a concept where different generations meet on stage. He invited, among others, his uncle Asghar: a classically trained actor from Iran who, in his seventies, represents a very different spirit of the time than his younger cousin who now lives and works in Belgium. In this way the production becomes a reflection in time - of evolutions versus traditions within the arts, but also in life in general.
